Tasty Tuesday: Shepherd's Pie low carb and fast
We were going to have shepherd's pie in celebration of St. Patty's day a few weeks ago. Some how, my brain thought that was March 15th. It's not, just in case you were wondering. But I did end up making shepherd's pie close to St. Patrick's day and it was tasty and what I consider low carb.
I used Rachel Ray's 30 minute shepherd's pie recipe for the base. I omitted the carrots and half the peas, but kept everything else pretty much the same. I figured 2 tablespoons of flour in an entire recipe is acceptable. Now, I used something amazing for the potato part at the top, I Breathe...I'm Hungry's "Better than Potatoes" Cheesy Cauliflower Puree. I cooked it up while the meat was browning and then through it in the food processor, I did add some cream cheese to her recipe. Once the filling was finished, I layered the cauliflower mash on top, sprinkled on some paprika and toasted it under the broiler.
It was tasty and I ate way too much of it. Unfortunately, my daughter doesn't eat casseroles, so I have no idea if it's kid worthy, but this momma loved it.
