Boil the sweet potatoes or butternut in a pot of water until tender. Drain and then mash with the butter and milk. Season with salt and pepper and put to one side.

Heat the oil in a large frying pan and fry the onion until soft. Add the garlic, carrot and mince and cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add the tomatoes and water, cover and cook on low heat for about 10 minutes. Switch on the oven’s grill.

Divide the beef mixture between 4 individual pots and spread mash on top of each. Sprinkle with cheese and grill for a few minutes until the tops are brown and crisp.
