1Chop the onion finely and soften them on a low heat in a little bit of olive oil (not the extra virgin kind).
2When the onion is soft, turn up the heat and add the mince. Fry until gently browned.
3Give it a splash of Worcestershire sauce and a table spoon of tomato puree, finely chop the garlic and add to your pan.
4At this point I prefer to add a cup of water, put a lid on and simmer gently in the oven for about 1 1/2 hours, but if you are short of time just go ahead to the next step.
5Chop the carrot, the tomatoes and the courgette into chunks.
6Add the vegetables to the mince and season with dried oregano, salt and pepper to taste, and a small pinch of sugar (makes all the flavours come together better, trust me. Cook for a further 20 min.
7For the mash, just boil the potatoes and the sweet potatoes for app. 25 min, or until soft enough for mashing.
8Add a knob of of butter , and if needed a splash of milk. The sweet potato will often make the mash loose enough.
9Season with salt and pepper.
10Assemble the the pie by putting the mince in the bottom of an oven proof dish and top with the mash. For a golden glistening finish, brush with a beaten egg.
11Cook in a pre-heated oven 225C for about 30 min, or 20 min if you slow-cooked the mince earlier.
12Scatter a hand full of parsley over the finished pie.
13Serve with a fresh green salad.
