Accessories you need



I used whatever veggies i have in the fridge. I also cook my potato and pumpkin on the stove top to save on time then blitz in thermie after meat is cooked. If i am rushing I dont worry about putting it in the oven and just serve mince and mash on plate with some side vegetables.
