Vegetarian Cottage Pie Recipe


1 finely chopped onion

Vegetable oil

350g Quorn or other Meat Free Mince

100g frozen peas, or if you’re not keen on peas replace with carrots or other veg

Bisto Suitable for Vegetarians300 mls Bisto gravy granules mixed with hot water (yes, Bisto is suitable for Vegetarians)

800g  potatoes, boiled and mashed, it’s up to you whether you use milk and butter, I do, but try not to let the mash be too wet and sloppy.

salt and pepper



In a large frying pan, fry the onions in some vegetable oil until soft. Add the vegetarian mince, peas and any other vegetables. The vegetarian mince does not need to browned in the frying pan like meat mince does but do ensure it has been fully heated through or if using frozen mince, completely thawed and warmed.

Add the gravy to the pan and let it cook for a few minutes until all the ingredients are lovely and hot. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Transfer the mixture to an oven proof dish.

Quorn Mince for Cottage Pie


Spoon on the mash potato until the mince mixture is completely covered. And sprinkle with some black pepper if you like.
