    Omg worth the effort ❤️ Changed around a bit with what I had in the house; pumpkin & sweet potato for the top, rice wine vinegar instead of wine, and oregano instead of tarragon, fresh mushies instead of porcini powder. And I drained some excess juice before baking. Delish!

    At the end the meat still had a lot of water from the cooking so I removed it with a colander.

  • Tasty, yes, if you close your

    Tasty, yes, if you close your eyes. It's not pretty. But then I did have to cook the meat sauce much longer than expected in order to steam the veg til tender.. I guess I didn't dice the veg finely enough. Why do we have to chop veg by hand anyway, isn't that why I bought a TM? Surely if it's going to be blended later it could be chopped in the TM and set aside at the start. Also had to turn it up to blend properly.
