400g mashed potato (use up leftovers or pre made chilled mash potato available in supermarkets)
1 egg yolk, beaten
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
2 tbsp fresh chives, chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste
Pre-heat the oil in a saucepan over a medium to high heat and add the onions. Gently fry for 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the carrots, celery and swede, cover and cook for a further 3 minutes stirring frequently
Stir in the hot stock and porcini mushroom paste, bring to the boil then cover and cook for 2 minutes on a high heat. Stir in the Quorn Mince, vegetarian Worcestershire sauce and the fresh thyme. Cover and cook on a medium heat for a further 7 minutes
Meanwhile, preheat the grill. Mix the mashed potato with the egg yolk and a good pinch of salt and pepper. Place in a microwaveable bowl, cover and cook on full power for 5 1/2 minutes.
