Veggie shepherd's pie with sweet potato mash

The secret to this shepherd's pie’s filling is to choose big carrots so they don’t lose their texture when cooked

Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Cook for 20 mins if cooking straight away, or for 40 mins from chilled, until golden and hot all the way through. Serve with broccoli.
