Low Carb, Low Fat Cottage Pie

April 10, 2016

Cottage pie was one of my favourite meals as a child. There’s something so comforting about meat in gravy covered with mashed potato. Now don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong as such with the classic recipe, but it’s pretty calorie laden. My version is just as tasty and comforting but with a few substitutes halves the number of calories in a standard portion. How I hear you cry?! Well I’ll tell you…

  • Prep: 20 mins
  • Cook: 15 mins
  • Yields: 3 Servings


400 g Extra Lean Beef Mince

100 g Onion

10 g Garlic

100 g Frozen Peas

25 g Blend Brothers Tomato Chorizo Savoury Blend

200 ml Water

For the mash

200 g Sliced Carrot

100 g Chopped Butternut Squash


1Place the carrot and buttersquash in a large saucepan of water and bring to the boil. Cooked until both the carrot and squash soften. This should be around 15 minutes.

2Then heat a large frying pan until it’s nice and hot. Add the mince, onion & garlic Fry until the vegetables soften & the mince browns. Once cooked through, transfer this to a oven safe dish and set aside.

3In a separate bowl mix together the water and Blend Brothers Tomato Chorizo Savoury Blend.

4Finally drain and mash the carrot and squash together.

5You are then ready to compile your pie! To do this just pour over the sauce (if you don’t have this you can use classic gravy – I prefer the reduced salt Bisto) then top with the mash.

6At this point you can add bread crumbs and/or cheese. But for the purposes of incredible macros I’ve left these off.

7Pop this under a hot grill for 10-15 minutes and its done!
