This was a recipe born of desperation at cooking stuff for my boys that was boring. They had toast so my wife & I had this!!!!
This is designed as a 30-minute meal (apologies to Mr. Oliver!) so start by putting a good sized non-stick casserole with a lid on the stove and turn it on to full, as well fill up your kettle and boil it.
Finely dice the onion and capsicum and grate the carrot with a medium course grater.
Spray the pan with a generous amount of canola cooking spray and add the veggies with a pinch of salt, stir then put the lid on while you prepare the potatoes.
Once the veggies have sweated for about 5 minutes scrape them to the edges of the pan to leave yourself a hot-spot for the mince to brown in. As the mince browns gradually incorporate it into the veggies then spread it out and let it cook with the lid on for a minute or 2 (this is really handy if you have not quite defrosted it fully let's face it we all have at least 500 g of mince in the freezer!!!!)
Scrape the meet and veggie mix to the side of the pan again and add the honey, mustard and verjuice and heat it until it bubbles, then crush in the garlic and quickly mix everything together again.
Add the chopped potatoes and about 2 cups of the water then simmer for about 20 minutes (or until the potatoes are done to your liking), adding extra ware off the boil as needed.
When the potatoes are almost ready adjust the seasoning with more salt, pepper and Worcester, and you can stir in some frozen peas, corn or whatever, or put some sliced zucchini on top to steam as I did (shown in the photo)
If you wanted to use this as a smuggling dish for the children you could chop the veggies in a food processor, you could also substitute the mince for a cheap cut of casserole meat and adjust cooking time accordingly
