A simple yet delicious recipe for shepherd’s pie given a little extra lift by adding dried porcini mushrooms, mashed parsnips and your choice of fresh herbs. Add the soaked porcinis to chopped onion, garlic, carrot and flat mushrooms, along with minced lamb. Depth of flavour comes from tomatoes and red wine – plus the addition of some slightly sweeter parsnips along with the usual mashed potato topping.
