This is a really tasty vegetarian dish, it can be eaten alone or as part of a larger meal. Its very filling, can be reheated and meat eaters can enjoy it by replacing the Quorn mince for regular mince. I would suggest serving with some fresh steamed vegetables such as broccoli, carrots and peas.

  1. Peel and quater the potatos and place in a pot of salted water to boil at a medium heat.

  3. Add the Quron mince to the onions and fry lightly to seal the mince. Mix together well. Add to the mince, stock made from the chopped tomatos, tomato puree and ketchup. Season to taste. Keep mixing!
  4. Line a casserole dish with the drained sweetcorn and layer on the mince mixture.
