If you’ve never tried Shepherd’s Pie, do yourself a huge favor & make this recipe ASAP.  Your life will never be the same!

If you can’t get enough of Shepherd’s Pie (like I can’t), do yourself a huge favor & make this recipe ASAP.  Your life will never be the same! 🙃

This version of Shepherd’s Pie is gluten-free, grain-free, and filled with healthy fats & high-quality protein.  It’s one of those recipes that feels like it should totally be a vacation meal (or “cheat meal” as some like to call it), but instead you can feel great about the health-giving meal you’re eating! 🤗

It’s made with mashed cauliflower on top (aka Mashed No-Tatoes), instead of starchy mashed potatoes that it’s traditionally made with.

Organic, grass-fed butter & organic virgin coconut oil add some healthy fats, replacing the damaged, unhealthy oils that are typically used.

Most importantly, this easy & healthy Shepherd’s Pie recipe features 100% grass-fed, organic beef — rather than conventional, non-organic meat — which highly healthifies the recipe!

(Technically, I think this would be considered “Cottage Pie” since it’s made with beef — & Shepherd’s Pie is typically made with lamb or a combination of meat — but anyways, that’s beside the point. 🙃 Shepherd’s Pie… Cottage Pie… it’s all good!)

         2. While the cauliflower is steaming, preheat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add coconut oil to pan with the beef.  

         3. Season meat with salt and pepper, and brown the meat with carrots and onion until the meat is no longer pink.  

         4. In a separate saucepan, cook butter and xanthan gum together, combining well.

         5. Whisk in broth and Bragg’s Liquid Aminos. Thicken gravy about 1 minute.

         6. Add gravy to meat and vegetables, and stir in the peas.

         7. Preheat broiler to high.

         8. Put meat mixture into a rectangular or round baking dish, and spread pureed cauliflower over the meat as evenly as possible, being careful not to let meat show through.
