For the champ topping, heat a pan of water, season with salt and add the potatoes and bring gently to the boil, simmer gently.
For the tomato sauce base, heat a large frying pan and add some olive oil. Add the chopped onion, garlic, carrots and celery and fry gently to soften a little for 5-10 minutes.
Add the tinned tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco, smoked paprika, bay leaves, red wine, vegetable stock and the rosemary.
Add the balsamic vinegar and some roughly chopped parsley and season well with salt and pepper. Bring to the boil.
At this stage the sauce needs to cook for a few minutes on a medium heat until the vegetables are soft and then it is ready to be divided in two.
For the beef mince – heat a frying pan, add a pack of lean beef mince and fry off until the mince is a nice brown colour
Transfer half the tomato sauce into the browned beef
Add the tin of lentils to the remaining tomato sauce.
Leave both frying pans on the hob while you finish the champ
Now finish off the champ topping. When the potatoes are almost done add the frozen peas and cook for a further minutes.
Chop the spring onions, melt a knob of butter in a small saucepan and then soften the onions in the butter
Once the onions are softened add the milk and heat gently
Drain the potatoes and peas and mash roughly.
Add the milk/butter/spring onion mixture to the potatoes and continue to mash until you have lovely chunky mash
Spoon either some of the lentil or beef mixture into an individual pie dish.
Top each of the side dishes with half of the champ. Crumble over the cheese and smoked paprika
Place your individual shepherds pie on a baking sheet in a preheated oven at 200C for about 25 – 30 minutes

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery. If you have come to Darwin city, you will understand the local culture and history of Darwin, taste some delicious food and enjoy the amazing scenery here ,also take some photo is a pretty good experience . do you think so.
