Ground Beef mixture

1 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 small onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 lb ground beef or lamb
  • 1 small zucchini diced
  • 1 cup crushed tomatoes
  • Salt and pepper

Cauliflower Topping

  • 1 small cauliflower cut into florets
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup shredded cheese
  • Salt and pepper


Shepherd’s Pie

    • Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan.  Add the onion and garlic and sauté on medium heat until soft and translucent.
    • Add the ground beef and cook, stirring frequently, until it is browned and cooked through.
    • Add the zucchini and tomatoes and stir to combine.
  • Reduce the heat to a simmer. Simmer uncovered for 10 minutes.

Cauliflower Topping

  • In a large pot, add cauliflower to boiling water.  Boil the cauliflower until soft, about 8-10 minutes.
  • Drain the cauliflower, allowing all steam to escape. Dry cauliflower will help make a creamier mash.
  • Transfer the drained cauliflower to a food processor.  Add the butter, cream, shredded cheese, salt, and pepper. Process until smooth.

To Assemble

  • Place the ground beef mixture in the bottom of a large casserole dish. Top with the mashed cauliflower.
  • Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes and until the filling is bubbly and the topping is browned
