By Diana Earnshaw

All the flavours of the 1970s Homity Pie that was so popular at the time. If you have some leftover cooked potatoes you can add them before pureeing. If you don’t have 300g of cooked potato, just use what you have and make up the weight with raw potato.

If you would prefer a vegan version - try this adapted recipe.
