Cauliflower Shepherds Pie
Health Highlights


2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
341 gm Beef, ground, lean
1/2 medium Yellow onion
2 clove(s) Garlic
1/2 cup diced Celery
2 medium Tomato
454 gm Cauliflower
1/2 cup Heavy cream, 38% M.F.
3/4 cup, shredded Cheddar cheese, sharp
3 cup Spinach
1 tsp Oregano, dried


Preheat the oven to 350F.


In a large skillet, warm the olive oil over medium heat. Add the beef, onion, garlic, celery and ½ teaspoon salt. Cook until the meat is browned, about 5-7 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes and remove from heat. Transfer to a 9x9 inch baking dish.


Steam the cauliflower until it becomes soft. Allow it to cool for 10 minutes so that the steam evaporates excess water. Add to a food processor or high-speed blender with the heavy cream, ¼ cup shredded cheddar, oregano and remaining ½ teaspoon salt. Puree until smooth.


Spread the cauliflower mixture on top of the beef in an even layer. Top with remaining ½ cup cheddar cheese.


Bake for 40 minutes, or until cheese is melted and slightly golden on top.


Store leftovers, covered, in the fridge.
