Everyone has their own favourite way to make mince.

I prefer mine more tomatoey but please make your mince as long as you use whole foods where possible.

I find a lot of refined, processed, MSG loaded gravy or soup powders find their way into most mince dishes.

Rather use a herb salt an dif you like tomato sauce try find an organic one or blend fresh tomatoes with 2 tsp of xylitol.


1 onion chopped

4 cloves garlic

1 tsp garam masala


Fry the above until soft


Add the mince and brown

Add 1 tin of tomatoes and 1 50g packet of tomato paste.

Mix well.

Add 2 tsp xylitol

Add 5 Tbl fresh chopped herbs or 2 Tbls dried herbs

Allow to simmer for about 30mins or longer to let the flavour develop


In another pot, steam cauliflower (if you want to use cauli mash as your topping, or otherwise sweet potato & butternut or baby potatoes)

Blend cauli until smooth but still a bit chunky (i like some texture in mine)

In a dish place your mince and top with your mash.

Sprinkle grated cheese and bake until melted and golden
