A hearty and healthy portion of shepherd's pie - delicious! This recipe uses turnip, however you can swap that for swede, carrot, potato or even parsnip and the Syns will stay the same on Green and Extra Easy 

1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC/400ºF/Gas 6.

2. Mix the turkey or beef, onion, carrot and mushrooms in a casserole dish, season, cover and bake for 35-40 minutes until the turkey is thoroughly cooked.

3. Meanwhile peel and cut the turnip into cubes, place in a large saucepan and cover with water. Add a pinch of salt, bring to the boil and cook until tender. Drain well.

4. Top the turkey mixture with the turnip and crisp under a pre-heated grill for 10 minutes, or until the turnip browns. Serve with a generous helping of Free green vegetables.

Tip: If you're not a fan of turnip, you could use mashed swede or carrot (or all three mixed - it's delicious).
