Shepards Pie

Everybody loves a good shepherds pie! So what sets mine apart from other recipes you might have tried?

Mine is very healthy of course but equally as delicious as your normal average recipe. I use ground turkey rather than beef, a large variety of veggies, a healthier version of the creamy potato topping, and tasty rosemary in the filling.

This recipe is a great way to use frozen riced cauliflower which is fairly new to the food market due to the ketogenic diet craze.

My version has great macros and micronutrients. If you want to boost the flavour and the health benefits you can also use sweet potato rather than the white mashed potato on top with all the same ingredients.

This recipe is great to serve for a crowd and also great to prep before hand and even freeze to use another time.
