Boil the Potato
Boil the Potato

Put a large saucepan of water with a pinch of salt on to boil for the potato. Chop the potato into 2cm chunks (no need to peel!). Pop them into the pan of water, bring back to the boil, lower the heat to medium and cook for 20 mins. TIP: The potato is cooked when you can easily slip a knife through.


Meanwhile, halve, peel and thinly slice the onion. Roughly chop the chestnut mushrooms. Halve the pepper, remove the core and seeds and slice into thin strips. Trim the carrot then grate on the coarse side of your grater. Roughly chop the sundried tomatoes.

Start the Filling & Finish Prep
Start the Filling & Finish Prep

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium heat. When hot, add the onion, mushrooms, peppers and sun-dried tomatoes. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally until soft and starting to brown, 6-7 mins. Whilst the veggies cook, drain and rinse the chickpeas in a sieve. Grate the cheddar cheese.

Simmer the Filling
Simmer the Filling

Stir the dried oregano into the veggies, then add the worcester sauce (see ingredients for amount) and cook for 1 minute more. Pour in the finely chopped tomatoes. Add the red wine stock pot and stir well to make sure it's dissolved. Stir in the grated carrot and the chickpeas then lower the heat until the mixture is simmering and cook with the lid off until the sauce is thick and tomatoey, 10-12 mins.

Mash the Topping
Mash the Topping

When the potato is ready, drain in a colander and return to the pan off the heat. Mash with a potato masher or fork, add the butter, mix well, then season with salt and pepper to taste. Keep to one side. Preheat your grill to its highest setting

Spoon the veggie mixture into an ovenproof dish and top with the mash. Smooth the mash over with a spoon, then sprinkle on the cheddar cheese. Pop under your grill until the cheese is golden and bubbling, 2-3 mins. Serve and enjoy!
