Easy Turkey Shepherd’s Pie with Cauliflower and Potato Mashed Potatoes

Another experiment gone right! Did not take me very long to throw this together. Great for eating clean and those of you wanting to eat healthy and lose weight too! 

Ingredients:

1 pkg ground turkey
1 onion, diced
2 carrots, diced
2 cloves garlic, chopped or grated
1 Tsp Thyme
Hefty pinch of Salt and a few twists of fresh ground black pepper
Pinch hot pepper flakes, optional
1 Tsp paprika
1 bag frozen green beans, cooked according to package
1 cup frozen corn
1 cup beef stock, optional
Topping:
1 bag frozen cauliflower, cooked according to directions - needs to be soft enough to mash
2 small baking potatoes, rinse, scrub and microwave until very soft then cut into chunks
1 tbsp butter
Salt and pepper
1 clove garlic, grated

Directions:

Brown turkey with onions and carrots; add in garlic, salt, pepper, paprika, hot pepper flakes, and thyme.  Once cooked, add in green beans, corn, and beef stock.  Pour mixture into a 13*9 casserole dish.  Combine cauliflower, potatoes, butter, salt, pepper and garlic and mix with food processor or hand mixer until whipped.  Top filling with potato mixture.  Warm in microwave or heat in oven.

*I only covered half with this mixture and then let my kids make some instant potatoes to have with theirs since they asked.
