Shepherd’s pie gets a healthy spin with ground turkey and mashed cauliflower for pure comfort food without the guilt.

This hearty Paleo shepherd’s pie is gluten-free and filled with nourishing ingredients! Plus, these pies are made in individual ramekins for perfect portion control.

The recipe uses ground turkey and mashed cauliflower in place of white potatoes. Cauliflower boasts healthy vitamins and minerals, packing magnesium, potassium and fiber. When mashed, cauliflower is just as flavorful as potatoes, and keeps its texture well when reheated.

To make the cauliflower mash, cut a cauliflower head in half, remove the stem and cut into florets. Boil for 15-20 minutes or until soft. Then blend with butter, coconut milk and chicken stock for maximum flavor! (See recipe – Mashed Cauliflower Drizzled with Oregano Butter). Tip: Make the cauliflower mash ahead of time!

To make the shepherd’s pie, sauté onion, carrots and celery over medium heat until just softened. Then add ground turkey and season with thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper. Once cooked through, add crushed tomatoes and chicken stock, simmering a few minutes more. Add the mixture to four ramekins, top with the mashed cauliflower and bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley and enjoy!
