    dry fry extra lean mince with onion (and mushrooms if liked).Season well and add spoon beef bovril.When cooked drain juices etc.(Add pint water and some gravy granules if want gravy with it and cook until thickened). Serve with boiled potataoes or place pots(sliced/ mashed on top of meat in an ovenproof dish and bake for 30 mins gas 6.(Can substitue pots for swede/carrot mash or sweet pot/bns mash).You could add tin chopped whizzed toms and extra bovril instead of gravy but its a matter if taste.

    Careful though - the above suggestions would only be free (minimal syns with gravy granules) on EE? If you're following Red or Green you'll have to be careful to only have the HE allowances of spuds & meat respectively or you'd have to syn the rest of each measure in the recipes.

    Curried mince and pots.

    Had this for lunch today and really enjoyed it.

    Fry mince, onion, ginger and garlic until cooked.
    Add 1 - 2 tbsp of curry poweder (any sort) and fry off for a minute or 2.
    Add 3/4 pint of water and cubed potatoes (as many as you wish).
    Simmer for half hour or until potatoes are cooked and majority of liquid absorbed.

    You can serve this with rice but I ate it on its own as the potatoes were enough.

    Enjoy!

    Thanks everyone. I am on EE so the mince & potatoes recipe sounds fab. My taste buds are quiet sensitive to spicey things so i'll maybe try the curry, with minimal spices . xx
