Method

Classic mince on toast

1.Peel and dice the vegetables into large pieces, then peel and crush garlic.
2.Heat butter in a large saucepan. When it is foaming and nut brown in colour, add the garlic and mince, and cook until all moisture has reduced or evaporated.
3.Add the vegetables, tomato paste, stock and dark soy. Use less soy at first and add more according to taste when finished.
4.If necessary, add some water to just cover the vegetables and mince. Bring to the boil, then simmer until the vegetables are tender and liquid has reduced.
5.With a masher, mash the mince and vegetables together. This will help thicken the mince and create a full savoury flavour.

To serve

6.Adjust seasoning and add some chopped thyme and parsley before serving on hot, buttered toast, topped with a poached egg, parmesan shavings and watercress.

We used approximately 1/2 cup of parmesan shavings and 2 cups of watercress to serve four plates of mince on toast.
