Low Carb Shepherd's Pie
This was so delicious. Total comfort food without the carbs. Although this recipe was a little more work, it will definitely be a regular in our rotation. I served it along side some leftover bacon brussel sprouts.
1 head cauliflower
3/4 stick of butter
garlic salt to taste
2 1/2 lbs ground turkey
1 carrot, diced
1 small onion, diced
1/2 zucchini, diced
1/2 c. peas
1/2 c chicken broth (beef or vegetable would be fine too)
2 Tbs Montreal Steak Seasoning
2 Tbs soy sauce
1/8 c. Worcestershire sauce
1/2-1 c. cheese (depending how how cheesy you want the top
-Boil your cauliflower florets in salted water until tender. Drain.
-in batches blend the cauliflower in a food processor until smooth
-Combine the puree with the butter and add garlic salt to taste. Once it tastes the way you like it, mix in one raw egg.
-In a deep cast iron pot (you can do this in a skillet and transfer to a baking dish if you don't have one) cook the ground turkey, carrots, onion, and Montreal Steak Seasoning. After the carrots start to soften add in the zucchini, peas, chicken broth, soy sauce, and Worcestershire sauce. Continue cooking a few minutes.
-Top the meat mixture with the cauliflower and then put the cheese on top of that. Stick the whole thing in a pre-heated oven at 400. Cook for about 30 minutes.
The cheese should be well browned on top making a delicious crust.
