This is an easy, healthy version of a traditional English dish from the Colitis Cookbook. It's total comfort food! I like to add about a cup of frozen peas with the parsley.
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 1⁄4 lbs ground turkey
- 3⁄4 cup diced onion
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1⁄2 cup chicken stock
- 1⁄2 cup rice milk or 1⁄2 cup soymilk
- 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
- 2 cups prepared instant mashed potatoes
- 1⁄4 teaspoon paprika
- In large skillet over medium heat, add the olive oil, ground turkey, diced onions and garlic.
- Saute the ingredients until the turkey is thoroughly cooked.
- Drain off excess juices from the turkey.
- Add the flour and incorporate thoroughly.
- Add the chicken stock and the rice or soy milk.
- Stirring constantly, bring the mixture to a boil, simmer for 1 minute and remove from heat.
- Add the chopped parsley and stir well.
- Place the meat mixture in a greased 9x9-inch casserole dish.
- Using a spatula, evenly distribute the mashed potatoes over the meat mixture.
- Sprinkle the paprika over the mashed potato topping.
- Bake the Shepherd's Pie for 25 to 30 minutes at 400 degrees.
A really delicious dish! Chnaged this just a bit...used milk and potatoes...=) . Liked this a lot! Thanks for posting.
So quick, easy and delicious. I used low Sodium Stock which I usually do and I recommend doing that but it did need a bit of Salt and Pepper. I prepared it as listed with the addition of the peas which were essential. After cooking it for 25 min. I covered the top with finely Shredded Cheese. It really made the dish even though it made it less healthy. I must admit we ate the whole thing so we pretty much blew any healthy ideas anyway. Thanks for a keeper.
I've never had Shepherd's Pie before, but this was a nice, easy meal to make with stuff we had around the house. Four stars is because I had to add more seasoning to keep the recipe from being bland. I didn't have chicken stock/broth, so I used 1/2 cup water plus a tablespoon of A-1, and one packet of soy sauce. Added a dash of cumin, cayenne pepper, and a dash of rosemary, as well as garlic and onion powder. I also added a lot of frozen peas and carrots. Very east recipe, and a fun one to let kids help you cook! I didn't use olive oil, I just didn't drain the meat. Thanks for an easy recipe, my FI enjoyed it!
