Ingredients

  • 400g lean minced beef
  • 1 onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 400g can whole tomatoes
  • 1 tsp dried thyme, oregano or mixed herbs
  • 400g can baked beans
  • 1kg potatoes, peeled
  • 1 large carrot, peeled
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 leek, about 250g (8oz), thinly sliced and rinsed
  • 100g kale or winter greens, shredded
  • 5 tablespoons milk
  • Knob of butter
  • Salt and ground black pepper

Cash-saving tips: for an even cheaper version, use minced pork instead of beef. You can also replace the beans with a good dash of Worcester sauce, and 200g frozen peas, if you like.

Method

  1. Heat a large frying pan, add the mince in one layer and once it has browned, add the onion and fry for 10 mins, stirring it occasionally, breaking it up with a spoon. Drain off the fat.
  2. Stir in the chopped tomatoes, herbs and 300ml ( pint) hot water. Bring to the boil and simmer, uncovered, for 20 mins. Stir in the baked beans. Spoon into the dish.
  3. Meanwhile, set the oven to 200C/400F/Gas Mark 6. Cut the potatoes and carrot into chunks, and cook with the garlic in boiling salted water until tender. Steam the leek and greens over the top, or place them in a bowl and cook in the microwave for a few mins.
  4. Spoon the greens over the mince. Drain the potato and carrot and put them return them to the pan. Add the milk and butter and mash well and season. Spoon the mash over the greens and roughen the top with a fork. Put the dish on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 20-25 mins until really hot.
