1

Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Peel the sweet potato and cut into 2cm chunks. Add the sweet potato to the boiling water and cook until tender, 10-15 minutes. Drain and return to the saucepan. Add butter (50g for 2 people / 100g for 4 people) and the salt and mash with a potato masher or fork until smooth. Set aside.

2

While the sweet potato is cooking, finely chop the brown onion. Finely chop the carrot (unpeeled). Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). Pick and finely chop the rosemary leaves. Pick the thyme leaves. Drain and rinse the lentils.

3

Preheat the grill to medium-high. In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add the onion and carrot and cook until softened, 5-6 minutes. Add the garlic, rosemary, thyme and tomato paste and cook, stirring, until fragrant and the tomato paste has darkened, 2-3 minutes.

4

Add the lentils, diced tomatoes, brown sugar, the water, crumbled vegetable stock (1 cube for 2 people / 2 cubes for 4 people) and the remaining butter to the frying pan. Simmer until reduced slightly, 5-7 minutes. Stir in the baby spinach leaves until wilted. TIP: Add a dash of water if the mixture looks dry!

5

Transfer the filling to a medium baking dish. Top with the sweet potato mash and sprinkle with the shredded Cheddar cheese. Grill until the cheese is melted, 8-10 minutes.

6

Divide the lentil shepherd's pie between bowls.
