Shepherds Pie with Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes


(It tasted better than it looks)

Base Recipe:

{Comfort Food} Shepherd’s Pie

Here’s what I changed:

– Olive Oil instead of butter.

– Cauliflower mashed potatoes instead of sweet potato (although I’m the sweet potato version is really good too!).  For the cauliflower mashed potatoes, I just steamed a large cauliflower until soft, then let it sit in a colander for 20 minutes to drain all of the water off, then put it in the food processor with a tablespoon of butter, a table spoon of olive oil, one large diced clove of garlic and salt, and blended until smooth.

– I added 1 head of cut up broccoli at the last minute, didn’t even pre-cook it, just threw it into the mix, the baking was enough and no one likes soggy broccoli.  It just seemed like it could use some extra green.

– Used half a bag of peas, a whole bag seemed like a lot.
