Is it doomed? I thought about just increasing the quantities of veg, or using plain yoghurt, but picky OH won't eat it with yoghurt. Any suggestions please?

what have you made? if its a chilli add a tin of tomatos and kidney beans to dilute it down and make more servings.
if its curry a tin of coconut cream.
if a stew put red lentils, rice, Quinoa or cous cous in to bulk it out and make more servings.

Is it a curry? Could you add extra passata etc? Coconut cream, coconut milk, double cream will all chill it out a bit. What is the recipe?

Instant mash helps a bit too.

I'd add more liquid/tomatoes to dilute the chilli flakes as others have said. What is it?

What have you made? Can you are sour cream on the side perhaps? And or slices of cucumber?

If its chilli adding a tin of baked beans is an easy fix

It's a veggie shepherd pie thing, with lentils and passata and stuff in already, including marmite. Have tried doing extra tomatoes and stuff. Still too hut. Might throw a tin of beans in!

Hot not hut, obs...

More potato? Bechamel sauce layer between bottom and potato?

Ha. It's growing in quantity with everything I add to it, so come round to ChezSponge for cottage pie. But bring wine grin
