  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Heat the oil in a large, lidded saucepan over a low heat. Add the carrots, celery, parsnip, leeks and garlic. Cook, covered, for 15 mins, stirring occasionally, until very soft. Stir in the tomato purée; cook for 1 min. Add the potatoes, rosemary and stock, bring to the boil, then simmer, covered, for 20 mins. Top up with water if it gets too thick.
  2. Meanwhile, put the stuffing mix in a bowl and pour over 200ml boiling water. Mix well and set aside for 5 mins. Shape into 12 equal balls, transfer to a greased baking tray and bake for 20 mins until golden.
