Shepherd Pie

Ingredients

Topping

  • 2 cups grated mozarella or cheddar cheese (I prefer mozzarella with this one)

Cauliflower Mash

  • 2 bags riced cauliflower (got mine from Costco)
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • ½ cup full fat sour cream
  • 3 tbsp italian parsley
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper

Beef Layer

  • 1 tbsp olive or avocado oil
  • ½ small onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 ½ – 2 lbs ground beef
  • 4 tsp beef bouillon base or tomato paste (I used tomato paste and it was perfecto)
  • ½ cup water
  • ⅛ tsp xanthan gum

Vegetable Layer

  • 3-4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • ½ small onion
  • 8 white mushrooms sliced
  • 1 can french green beans
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 bag sliced baby carrots (optional)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan sea salt

Cauliflower Mash

  • Add the butter to the cauliflower then puree with an immersion blender until smooth. Stir in sour cream, pepper, salt, garlic powder and Italian parsley. Set aside.

Beef

  • Mince the onion and press or mince the garlic. Heat a skillet on medium high heat with oil. Once hot, add the onion and cook until translucent. Stir in the garlic and black pepper. Cook until fragrant, about a minute, then mix in the ground beef. Cook until the beef is no longer pink.
  • Stir in the bouillon base or tomato paste, then water. Mix well and bring to a simmer, then sprinkle in the xanthan gum. Cook for an additional minute until thick. Press the beef into the bottom of a 9×13″ baking dish.

Veggies

  • Wash the mushrooms, chop in half, then slice into thin slices. Chop baby carrots.  Wash the green beans, trim the ends off and cut into 1” sections. Mince the onion and press or mince the garlic.
  • Add the butter to the skillet and continue to heat on medium high. Once the butter hot, toss in the mushrooms and carrots and onion. Cook until the mushrooms are browned and the onion is translucent. Mix in the garlic and pepper and cook for an additional minute until fragrant. Stir in the green beans to coat, then pour the veggies over the beef and press gently.
  • Spread the cauliflower mash evenly over the veggies and smooth to finish.

Bake

  • Top with cheese and bake for 35-40 minutes, until the cheese is bubbly. Slice into 12, serve hot and enjoy!
