Luke's Keto Shepherd's Pie

I had a hankering for Shephard's Pie recently but not wanting to dive headfirst into a carb coma I decided to whip up my own, keto shephards pie, or cottage pie as it's sometimes called. It was seriously easy and far out it was delicious. Super healthy, super high protein and low carb. Loving it :) Luke

The Cheesy Mash

 1/2 a large cauliflower

 50g of butter

 1 cup of grated cheese

 A dash of milk (any milk is fine)

The Beautiful Bolognese

 1kg of beef mince (You could use any mince)

 1 large spanish onion

 2x 400g tins of diced tomatoes

 3 medium zucchinis, grated

 2 large carrots, grated

 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes

 Your favourite herbs

The Toppings (Optional)

 Sesame seeds

 Chilli flakes

 More cheese



1Preheat your oven to 200°C

To make the Bolognese Sauce

1You can use your favourite recipe, or mine here below.

2In a large fry-pan on medium-hot heat, fry off the onions until golden brown

3Add the beef mince (or mince of your choice) and brown it off

4Add in the grated zucchini, grated carrot, diced tomatoes and favourite herbs

5Reduce the heat down to a simmer and leave to reduce down for 20-30 minutes (you want the mixture to be nice and thick and rich, not watery)

To make the Cheesy Cauliflower Mash

1Put a pot on the stove with about an inch of water, and a steamer on top

2Cut the cauliflower into small equally sized florretes (I had about 15 pieces from 1/2 a cauliflower) and place them into the steamer, steam for about 5-10 minutes until soft

3Discard the water from the saucepan and then tip the cooked cauliflower into the saucepan

4Add the butter, milk and grated cheese to the saucepan and use a kitchen aid to blitz it until creamy and smooth (if you don't have a kitchen aid you can use a blender)

Put it all together

1Pour the bolognese sauce into a large baking dish, filling the dish about 1/2 way up the side

2Pour the cheesy cauliflower mash on top and use a spoon to spread it out to the edges

3Top with more grated cheese, sesame seeds and chilli flakes (optional)

4Put it in the oven for about 15 minutes or until the top is golden brown!

5Pour yourself a glass of wine. You've earn't it.
