Sweet Potato Cauliflower Mash with Lamb Mince Recipe
2oog mince, 2 medium sweet potatoes, half a head cauliflower, 2 grated tomatoes, half a diced onion, 2 teaspoons turmeric powder, 1 teaspoon dried chili flakes or less, half a diced capsicum/pepper, olive oil, salt, black pepper, 1 or 2 tablespoons cooking fat of choice( 1 if solid fat or 2 liquid), 1 or 2 coriander stems and leaves or other herb
Boil the sweet potatoes whole in about 2 cups of water for about 25 to 30 minutes. While the sweet potato is cooking start the mince.
In a pan add cooking fat of choice and fry onions until translucent. Add the mince and cook, stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes until meat loses raw color. Add capsicums and cook for about a minute then add tomatoes. Stir and bring to a simmer. Add turmeric, chili, salt and some black pepper and taste and tweak. Leave it cook for about 5 minutes at low heat. You can add a bit of water or broth if needed if your tomatoes are not juicy enough. Less than half a cup should be adequate.
Towards the last 7 minutes or so of cooking the mince boil the cauliflower for about 5 minutes. Transfer to a processor or blender. Add salt, coriander and a drizzle of olive oil and process to mash.
When the sweet potato is cooked you can peel or not, and use a masher to process. You can add butter or olive oil or other fat or leave as it is.
Once mashed add the sweet potato mash and make a well, then add the cauliflower mash and also make a well for the mince. Or serve it which ever way you like.
Add mince and bits of chunky sweet potato if you have any left and season with chili and herbs of choice. Drizzle olive oil if you need to or have to.
Enjoy the satisfying goodness of Sweet Potato Cauliflower Mash with Lamb Mince.
