This is fabulous feel-good food at its best.
The fact that it is packed to the hilt with important nutrients for the nervous system is a massive bonus. But it tastes so good, that will be the last thing on your mind!
• 2 1/2 large sweet potatoes
• 1/2 onion, finely chopped
• 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
• 1 tablespoon olive oil
• sea salt
• freshly ground black pepper
• 200g low-fat soft cheese
• 100ml vegetable stock
• 2 teaspoons wholegrain mustard
• 400g fish pie mix
• 10g dill, roughly chopped
1 Peel the sweet potatoes and chop them. Place in a saucepan, cover with boiling water and simmer for around 20 minutes, until very soft. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
2 Sauté the onion and garlic in the olive oil, with a pinch of sea salt, until the onion softens. Add the soft cheese, stock and mustard to the pan and mix well over a medium heat.
3 Add the fish pie mix and simmer for 10 minutes, until most of the fish is cooked. Add the dill and mix well.
4 Transfer the mixture to a baking dish. Mash the sweet potato into a smooth mash, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.
5 Top the fish with the sweet potato mash and bake at the top of the oven for about 15 minutes, until the sauce is bubbling and the top of the mash is starting to get crispy.
