Low Cal Quorn Cottage Pie

I've replaced the high cal ingredients of a traditional cottage pie to create this low-cal version, which works out at 205 cals per serving.

Ingredients (Serves Two People)
150g Quorn Mince (half a bag)
2 Medium carrots roughly chopped
3 Celery sticks chopped
1 Medium Onion chopped
200g Button Mushrooms sliced
90g Small baking potato sliced wafer thin
1tbsp Bouillon Powder
100ml Water
Dash Soy sauce & Worcestershire sauce

Simmer all the vegetables (except the potato) in the stock until they start to soften. Add the Quorn mince and put into an oven-proof dish, spread to thin discs of potato over the top of the vegetables, and press down with the back of a spoon. Top up with water to cover the potato. Cook for 25-30 mins until the potato layer is cooked and brown under a grill if necessary.

  1. As an alternative, substitute leeks for the onion -- it makes a really sweet, unctuous pie.
