Low Carb Shepherd's Pie and Cauliflower Mash



  • 2 Tbs olive oil or coconut oil
  • 750g beef mince
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, crushed and chopped
  • 1 medium onion, finely diced
  • 2 cups low carb veggies (mushrooms, capsicum, celery, courgettes, etc) – diced
  • 2/3 of a 140g pot of tomato paste (freeze the rest) (100g)
  • 1 tsp dried mixed herbs
  • Grated cheese
  • Cauliflower mash


Heat oil in pan and saute the mince, garlic and onion for a couple of minutes.  Add tomato paste, mixed herbs and prepared veggies.  Cook over low heat until veggies are tender.  Add a little water if the mixture is a bit dry.  Ideally, let the mixture simmer gently for about 20 minutes to develop the flavours. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Pour into a greased baking dish and top with cauliflower mash, then sprinkle with grated cheese.  Parmesan or Vintage cheese give a lovely strong flavour.

Bake at 180 degrees for around 40 minutes.
