Sweet Potato Shepherds Pie. 

I made a batch of chilli yesterday. I froze five portions and had a portion as an adapted shepherds pie for dinner.

Sweet potatoes are higher in sugar than regular potatoes (hence the name sweet) but are much higher in vitamin A and have more vitamin C and fibre

1 beef stock cube

1 tspn mixed herbs
