Traditional Shepherd’s Pie gets a low carb makeover with some mashed cauliflower and cheddar cheese. Comfort food at its finest!
Comfort food alert! Comfort food alert! It’s quickly getting to that time of year when we all crave soups and stews and meatloaf. Some parts of the world (mine) are already well underway in comfort food season. And as far as I am concerned, shepherd’s pie fits well within the definition of comfort. It’s meat and potatoes, man! Except that it’s not potatoes, at least not in this healthy, de-carbified version. That smooth, creamy topping has nary a starchy potato to be seen. It’s potato’s low carb nemesis, cauliflower! And it makes a fabulous topping for your meaty pie. It also doesn’t fill you up nearly so much with heavy starches, so you don’t walk away from the table feeling as if you just consumed a bowling ball. That means there is room for dessert!
