Heat olive oil in a pot.

Add garlic and onion, and stir-fry for a minute or two. Add mince, stir constantly and allow to brown. Add carrots and toss to mix well.

Stir in remaining ingredients ? except herbs ? and bring to the boil. Topping Boil potatoes until soft. Drain and mash with milk and stock to achieve desired consistency.

Season well.

Spoon mashed potato onto mince mixture ? this is slightly easier to do if the mince has cooled a bit.

Sprinkle with paprika and bake in preheated 180°C oven for about 20 minutes.

Grill to brown if necessary. Serve with steamed vegetables or salad.
