I had a hankering for Shephard's Pie recently but not wanting to dive headfirst into a carb coma I decided to whip up my own, keto shephards pie, or cottage pie as it's sometimes called. It was seriously easy and far out it was delicious. Super healthy, super high protein and low carb. Loving it 🙂 Luke
The Cheesy Mash
The Beautiful Bolognese
The Toppings (Optional)
1Preheat your oven to 200°C
To make the Bolognese Sauce
1You can use your favourite recipe, or mine here below.
2In a large fry-pan on medium-hot heat, fry off the onions until golden brown
3Add the beef mince (or mince of your choice) and brown it off
4Add in the grated zucchini, grated carrot, diced tomatoes and favourite herbs
5Reduce the heat down to a simmer and leave to reduce down for 20-30 minutes (you want the mixture to be nice and thick and rich, not watery)
To make the Cheesy Cauliflower Mash
1Put a pot on the stove with about an inch of water, and a steamer on top
2Cut the cauliflower into small equally sized florretes (I had about 15 pieces from 1/2 a cauliflower) and place them into the steamer, steam for about 5-10 minutes until soft
3Discard the water from the saucepan and then tip the cooked cauliflower into the saucepan
4Add the butter, milk and grated cheese to the saucepan and use a kitchen aid to blitz it until creamy and smooth (if you don't have a kitchen aid you can use a blender)
Put it all together
1Pour the bolognese sauce into a large baking dish, filling the dish about 1/2 way up the side
2Pour the cheesy cauliflower mash on top and use a spoon to spread it out to the edges
3Top with more grated cheese, sesame seeds and chilli flakes (optional)
4Put it in the oven for about 15 minutes or until the top is golden brown!
5Pour yourself a glass of wine. You've earn't it.
