Ground Beef mixture: 

  • 1 lb ground beef 
  • ¾ cup carrots or peas or whatever you like
  • ¾ cup Tomato Sauce
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion diced
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Cauliflower Topping: 

  • 1 small cauliflower cut into florets 
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup shredded cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions for Shepard’s Pie: 

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan.  Add the onion and garlic and sauté on medium heat until soft and translucent. 
  2. Add the ground beef and cook, stirring frequently, until it is browned and cooked through. 
  3. Add the peas and tomatoes and stir to combine. 
  4. Reduce the heat to a simmer. Simmer uncovered for 10 minutes. 

Instructions for Cauliflower Topping: 

  1. In a large pot, add cauliflower to boiling water.  Boil the cauliflower until soft, about 8-10 minutes.

  3. Transfer the drained cauliflower to a food processor.  Add the butter, cream, salt, and pepper. Process until smooth. 

To assemble: 

  1. Place the ground beef mixture in the bottom of a large casserole dish. Top with the mashed cauliflower and shredded cheese. 
  2. Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes and until the filling is bubbly and the topping is browned
