Heat the low cal spray in a large pan, then cook the onions for 6 mins until starting to turn golden. Add the garlic, carrots and thyme, and cook for 4 mins more. Stir in the mince, breaking it up with the spoon. When it has turned brown, add the lentils, peas and turnips with the flour. Cook for 1-2 mins, then gradually add the stock and red wine. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 35-40 mins. Meanwhile, boil the potatoes for 15-20 mins in a large pot until tender. Drain and mash with the yogurt, nutmeg and black pepper. Spoon the meat mince and veg into a large ovenproof dish, then spread the potato mixture on top. Cook in the oven for about 20 mins or until golden brown on top.
