Happy St. Patrick's Day!

In honor of St. Patrick's Day I wanted to experiment with Sheppard's Pie for dinner. Sakief and I also love to eat food inspired from all over the world. Here is our version of Sheppard's Pie, and our first attempt at food from Great Britain! I used a traditional Sheppard's Pie recipe and made it my own. We both enjoyed it, and I hope others will too!

I give you, "Sheppard's Pie a la Sarah's Low Carb Life" :

Tonight's dinner was an excellent group effort. I once attempted mashed cauliflower and failed miserably. Sakief was much more successful with his first attempt, and so has become the mashed cauliflower expert in our house. I don't even attempt it anymore.

1-1.5 lbs ground turkey
2 cups mixed vegetables
1 cup chopped onion
6 oz can tomato paste
Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup beer
2 Tbsp olive oil

1 head cauliflower
Fat free Parmesan cheese
Non fat plain Greek Yogurt

To prepare stuffing: Add olive oil to sauce pan. Cook turkey, mixed vegetables and onion until turkey is brown. Do not drain. Add spices, Worcestershire sauce and tomato paste and stir. Let it cook down, and then add beer. Remove from heat.

To prepare cauliflower: Chop cauliflower into large chunks and steam until tender(we use a colander in a large pot, but steam however you like). Place cauliflower, 2 Tbsp Greek yogurt, 2 Tbsp Parmesan, and spices in a blender and puree. Add more yogurt and/or parmesan until desired creaminess is achieved.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Place stuffing in the bottom of a baking dish and pack down. Cover with mashed cauliflower. Sprinkle a little more parmesan on top. Bake 15-20 mins. Serve hot.
