We’re excited to introduce you to one of our fellow low carb bloggers, Tiffany of That’s Low Carb?!. She’s bringing us an awesome, Low Carb Shepherd’s Pie using some wholesome, delicious ingredients. This pie/casserole combo may be low in carbs but it’s full of flavor. You and your family are bound to love it. Enjoy!

Keto Comfort Food!

Shepherd’s Pie originated in the UK as a means of using up leftover meats. Traditionally, Shepherd’s Pie is made with ground lamb and Cottage Pie is made with ground beef.

I’m not a fan of either, so I opted for ground turkey. But the meats in this dish are truly interchangeable. If you have a preference one way or the other, any of those meats will work with this recipe.

Shepherd’s Pie is a hearty, filling and comforting food on a cold fall or winter evening. Even though this low carb version is made with riced cauliflower instead of mashed potatoes, it’s still incredibly satisfying. You don’t need a ton of this to feel full. It will pair nicely with a salad or some cooked greens and travels well as a “leftovers-lunch” the next day.

The trick with the topping is to make sure that the cauliflower has no water in it. I purchase mine frozen and then simply microwave without any water. But if you purchase it raw or rice it yourself at home in your food processor, you will most likely end up cooking it in water.

If you go this route, you’ll want to drain the water off and then transfer the cauliflower to a piece of cheesecloth folded over a few times for a “finer mesh”. Wring out as much of the water as you can. This finished dish will have a bit of liquid in the bottom anyway, so you don’t want to add more by leaving water in your cauliflower.

This freezes well and will keep in the freezer for up to 3 months or in the fridge for up to 3 days (before baking). After baking, it will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days.

This is a wonderful dish to make ahead of time. Prep it on the weekend and bake it on a busy weeknight!

If you love shepherd’s pie, then you’ve got to try the keto shepherd’s pie from Primal Edge Health. Topped with cauliflower mash and melted cheese, it is a fun take on this delicious recipe!
