Shepherd’s Pie was one of my favorite dishes when I was a kid. My grandmother made it on special occasions. Recently I started craving it.

This AIP Paleo Shepherd’s Pie is a one-pan dish that is so easy to make. A Healthy Whole 30, gluten-free, dairy-free & Low Carb dish too.

Maybe because it’s a comfort food from my past. Not sure, so I decided to make an AIP Paleo version, plus add my own unique flair to it.

My daughter doesn’t like peas so I use green beans (re-intro) instead. Plus I like to throw in as many veggies as I can to make it as nutrient-dense as possible. Of course, you don’t have to if you don’t have them or don’t want them.

If you want, you can always serve a side salad, (not necessary since it has so many veggies). I do this sometimes too! It just depends on my mood & how fancy I want to be!

Directions:

  • Preheat Oven to 375*
  • Heat pan to med to med-high heat (careful not to reach smoking point) with EVOO. I use a deep pan similar to this.
  • Add onions, garlic & ground lamb or beef.
  • Saute until brown.
  • While browning ground lamb or beef, add water to a different pot, like this one, for boiling or steaming cauliflower.
  • Add cauliflower to water & bring to boil. Cook for about 10 min.
  • When beef is browned, add herbsmushrooms, carrots, green beans, zucchini, squash & spinach.
  • When cauliflower is done, rinse with cool water, drain.
  • Put in a food processor with Ghee or Butter. (leave out for AIP)
  • Add sea salt, nutritional yeast, garlic & onion powder to taste. (I like a lot)
  • Blend until desired consistency. (you don’t want it too soupy) Add bone broth, Ghee or butter as needed.
  • Pour meat mixture into a casserole dish. I use a Pyrex 10″x 15″
  • Spread cauliflower mixture on top of the meat mixture
  • Cook in the oven for about 20-30 min until browning on top & bubbly.
