Low FODMAP and Gluten Free Recipe - Cottage pie with Parmesan mash


1 tbsp sunflower oil

2 celery sticks, finely chopped

2 carrots, peeled, finely chopped

500g/17½oz lean beef mince

150ml/5fl oz red wine

2 tbsp plain gluten free flour

500ml/17½fl oz low FODMAP beef stock

300ml/10½fl oz cold water

2 tbsp tomato purée

½ tsp mixed dried herbs

1 dried bay leaf

splash Worcestershire sauce

salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the topping

800g/1lb 12oz floury potatoes, such as King Edward or Maris Piper, peeled and cut into even-sized pieces

40g/1½oz lactose free butter, cubed

3 tbsp lactose free milk

100g/3½oz Parmesan, grated

salt and freshly ground black pepper


Heat the sunflower oil in a large deep lidded pan over a medium heat and gently fry the celery and carrots for 7-8 minutes, or until softened and lightly coloured.

Add the beef mince to the pan and cook with the vegetables for 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently, until the meat is browned all over.

Pour the wine into the pan, bring the mixture to the boil and cook for 4-5 minutes, or until most of the liquid has evaporated, then sprinkle over the gluten free flour and stir well for a few minutes to prevent any lumps from forming.

Gradually add the beef stock to the pan, then add the cold water, tomato purée and dried herbs.

Bring the mixture to a gentle simmer, then cover with the lid and cook over a low heat for 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the mince is tender and the sauce has thickened.

Season with a splash of Worcestershire sauce and salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Remove from the heat, spoon into a 1.5 litre/2 pints 13fl oz ovenproof dish and set aside.

Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6. Half-fill a large pan with cold water. Add the potatoes and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for about 15 minutes, or until the potatoes are very soft.

Drain the potatoes, then return to the pan set over a medium heat. Cook for a few seconds to drive off any excess moisture, then remove the potatoes from the heat.

Add the lactose free butter, lactose free milk and Parmesan cheese and mash until smooth and creamy. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Spoon the mash over the mince mixture in the ovenproof dish, working towards the middle from the outside. Smooth with a palette knife. When all the mince is covered with mash, create patterns on the surface using a fork.

Place the dish on a baking tray and bake in the centre of the oven for around 25 minutes, or until the potatoes are golden-brown and the filling is bubbling up around the edges. Serve with freshly cooked green beans.
