Shepherd's Pie tonight.......Induction friendly from Linda's Low Carb site
MOCK SHEPHERD’S PIE
I adapted a recipe from online to make a mock Shepherd's pie. I used ground turkey instead of ground beef. The nutritional info will be a little different with ground beef (more calories, but not any more carbs)
2: 16 oz bags frozen cauliflower
1: 16 oz bag frozen green beans
2 oz cream cheese
4 oz shredded cheddar cheese
20 oz ground turkey
1 medium onion diced (mine was 98 grams)
xanthan gum or 1 raw egg
1 T garlic powder
salt and pepper
-take two 16oz bags of frozen cauliflower
-microwave for about 14 minutes in a microwave safe bowl or until cauliflower is very tender
-drain really well (if you don't remove the water, it'll end up like soup)
-add them to a food processor with 2 ounces of cream cheese, salt, pepper, garlic powder (whatever spices you like).
-pulse till it's smooth like mashed potatoes (or if you don't have a processor, mash with a potato masher).
MEAT (do this while cauliflower is microwaving)
-saute diced up onion and brown the turkey (mince it up)
-add salt/pepper/garlic powder
-once cooked throughout, I added a little xanthan gum to thicken it, or you could use a raw egg
-stir in 2oz cheddar cheese
Cook the frozen green beans till soft.
Okay, so now here's the layering
-add ground meat/onion mixture to the bottom of a 9x13 pan, top with a layer of green beans, then spread around the mashed cauliflower on top. Top with the remaining 2oz of cheddar (or more if you like). Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
It came out really nice. I like making casseroles this time of year when it's cold out. Here's the nutritional info without an egg.
For the entire recipe:
Total carb: 93.8
Net carb: 57.64 (I had an 1/8 of a serving, which is 7.2 net carbs)
You could halve the cauliflower recipe if this is too many carbs, but it's all veggie carbs, so I say the more the merrier.
