Shepherd’s Pie *paleo

wpid-imag0883.jpg

For the beef mixture:

1 1/2 pounds of ground beef/lamb (I used a mix of both.)
1/2 yellow onion, diced
3 carrots, diced
3 stalks of celery, diced
2 T tomato paste
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/8 tsp ground clove
1/4 tsp cinnamon
salt and pepper to taste

For the topping:

1 large head of cauliflower
1/2 cup chicken broth
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese (you could omit this to make it strict paleo)

Preheat oven to 350F.

Brown meat in large pan.  Add in veggies and seasonings.  Cook for another 5 minutes.
Add in tomato paste and broth.  Stir to combine all flavors and simmer for 10 minutes.

While making the above, steam your cauliflower.  Once softened add the cauliflower, broth, salt and pepper to your mixer.  Puree til smooth.  Add extra broth if needed.

Place meat mixture in bottom of baking dish (I used a 8X8 glass dish.).  Spread cauliflower mixture on top and sprinkle with a little parmesan cheese.  Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown on top.  (I broiled mine for 2 extra minutes to get the cheese nice and crusty!)wpid-imag0881.jpg
