Nothing says comfort food quite like a shepherd’s pie. This recipe was a huge hit in our house and it was so simple to make. I suggest preparing this on the weekend to have lunches ready for the whole week. This shepherd’s pie freezes great – so double batch it and you can relax next weekend.

Ingredients
  1. 2 lbs ground beef (preferably grass-fed)
  2. 4 cloves garlic, minced
  3. 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  4. 2 carrots, chopped
  5. 1 container (~8oz) of mushrooms, sliced
  6. 1 bag of frozen peas, thawed (~16oz)
  7. 2 cans tomato paste (~ 6oz each)
  8. 4 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  9. 2 tsp dried rosemary
  10. 1 tsp dried thyme
  11. 4 medium sweet potatoes
  12. ½ cup coconut milk
  13. 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  14. sea salt and pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 F.
  2. In a large skillet, brown the meat with the cloves of garlic in butter.
  3. Once the meat is browned, remove it from the pan, and cook the onions, carrots and mushrooms until carrots are soft and onions are translucent.
  4. Add the meat back to the pan, add the tomato paste, balsamic vinegar, rosemary, thyme and salt.
  5. Cook until all of the excess liquid has cooked off.
  6. Stir in the peas.
  7. Pour the meat mixture into a large baking dish-- 9 x 13" works well.
  8. Bake your sweet potatoes: place the sweet potatoes on a foiled lined baking sheet and bake until soft-- about 40 minutes depending on the size of your sweet potatoes. (You could also do this step while you are cooking the meat on the stove top).
  9. Allow the potatoes to cool for a few minutes, then peel and place into a medium-sized bowl with coconut milk, coconut oil, sea salt and pepper.
  10. Mash the sweet potatoes into a paste, and spread on top of your meat and vegetable mixture.
  11. Bake the shepherd's pie for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the sides are bubbling and the center is hot.
