Keepin’ Cozy in the Snow: Paleo Shepard’s Pie

The beautiful 60+ degree weekend we had is but a memory and it has been replaced with cold, wet snow. Tomorrow morning I will most likely wake up to this view out the back of my apartment complex.ImageOctober, 2012

To try to stay warm and cozy I decided to whip up a quick Shepard’s Pie (Paleo style, of course).

Paleo Shepard’s Pie*

1lb ground beef (I used 1.25 lbs because I like meat)

1 Onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

2 parsnips

1 carrot

1 cup mushrooms (I didn’t use them in mine because someone I share my meals with hates them, but I think they would be good to add)

1 Tablespoon freshly chopped Sage

1 Tablespoon freshly chopped Rosemary

1 Tablespoon freshly chopped Thyme

1/2 cup chicken broth

1 Tablespoon Potato Starch (sold in the cooking isle, right by corn starch)

1 head of cauliflower

1 egg

salt and pepper

1. Brown beef in large sauté pan

2. Add parsnips, carrots, mushrooms, onions and garlic. Let cook for about 3 minutes

3. Add 1/2 cup chicken broth and cook until parsnips/carrots are soft. Add about 3/4 of the herbs and mix. Pour mixture into oven safe dish.

4. Steam Cauliflower, when soft use potato masher to lightly mash

5. Add 1 egg and potato starch and remainder of herbs to mashed cauliflower and stir

6. Spread cauliflower mixture on top of the meat/veggie mixture.

7. Put in the oven for about 10 minutes or until the top is slightly browned.

8. Put a heaping portion on your plate and cozy up under some blankets to fight the cold!
