Shepherd's Pie

Sometimes you need some real traditional comfort food, and this is it! I love this for a weekend meal with the family or just a day you need something to eat that feels like a warm hug. I've swapped out all of the high carb ingredients, but I don't think you lose anything in flavour.

  • Olive oil
  • 1 onion diced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 carrots diced (optional)
  • 500g lamb mince
  • 2 tbsp tomato purée
  • 1 tbsp thyme leaves
  • ½ tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • 500ml beef stock
  • 2 cauliflowers cut into florets
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast (optional)
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper


Step 1

In a large pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil (1½ tbsp) over medium high heat.

Step 2

Once hot, add the onion, garlic, and carrots. Allow to cook for a few minutes until the onion has become soft and translucent.

Step 3

Add the lamb mince, breaking it up with a wooden spoon.

Step 4

Add the tomato purée, thyme, and worcestershire sauce, and allow to cook until the lamb is browned.

Step 5

Add the beef stock, bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Allow to simmer for about 40 minutes, after which the liquid should have reduced.

Step 6

Preheat your oven to 170°C.

Step 7

Meanwhile, blanch your cauliflower in boiling water for a few minutes until very tender. Drain the water, mash and heat over a low heat.

Step 8

Add the butter, nutritional yeast (if using), garlic powder, pepper, and a generous amount of salt. Stir until fully combined.

Step 9

Add the lamb mixture to the bottom of the baking dish, and then top with the cauliflower mash.
