Cauliflower Shepherd’s Pie

Yields1 Serving

 ½ head Cauliflower (chopped into florets)
 1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil (divided)
 ½ Yellow Onion (diced)
 1 Garlic (cloves, minced)
 8 oz Extra Lean Ground Turkey
 1 ½ cups Mushrooms (sliced)
 1 Carrot (diced)
 1 stalk Celery (diced)
 1 ½ tbsp Italian Seasoning
  tsp Sea Salt

Preheat oven to 350ºF (177ºC).


Place cauliflower florets in a medium sized saucepan, cover with water and bring to a boil. Let the florets boil until they are soft, about 15 minutes.


While the cauliflower is boiling, heat half of the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic, cook for 5 minutes or until onions are translucent.


Add the meat, and cook until browned.


Add the mushrooms, carrots, celery, Italian seasoning, and salt. Continue to cook for a few minutes, until the meat is cooked through. Remove from heat.


Drain the cauliflower and discard cooking water. Return the cauliflower to the pot and add the other half of the olive oil and a sprinkle of salt. Mash well until the cauliflower becomes almost like a puree.


Transfer the meat mixture to a casserole or pie dish and distribute into an even layer. Top with the cauliflower mash and spread it evenly across the top.


Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes. Turn the oven to a low broil and broil for 10 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven and serve. Enjoy!
