Makes 6 Snackies or 1 large pie - serves 6
- 600 g (3 ½ cups) potato, cut into chunks equates to 3 medium potatoes
- 400 g (3 cups) sweet potato, cut into chunks equates to 1 large potato
- 2 large salmon fillets (approximately 500 g), skin removed and cut into chunks
- 150 g (1 cup) carrot, diced equates to 2 medium carrots
- 100 g (1 cup) sweetcorn
- 90 g (1 ½ cup) cheese, grated
- 75 g (2 cups) leek, finely sliced equates to half a medium leek
- 40 g (1 cup) spinach, roughly chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, finely diced
- juice of half a lemon
- zest of half a lemon
- 1 tsp dill
- salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
Boil potatoes and sweet potato for 10 minutes or until cooked.
Meanwhile place all remaining ingredients except for the cheese into a large bowl. Mix with hands until well combined. Mix through 1 cup of grated cheese, leaving the other ½ cup for the topping. Transfer mixture to the Snackies, leaving enough room for the potato topping.
Drain and mash potatoes (using a splash of milk and/or butter and salt and pepper if you wish). Top the pie ingredients with the mash, roughly spreading with a fork. Sprinkle remaining grated cheese on the top.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until topping is golden and starting to crispen up.
Serve with steamed greens of your choice and enjoy!
