Whole30 Compliant Shepherd’s Pie
Happy New Year!
It’s cold, it’s snowy, we have new resolutions, and we certainly don’t want to be following through on any of those pesky healthy eating ones. Just me? Well, I know for a fact most of my friends (and I) started off the new year with another round of Whole30.
Honestly, this time around has been the easiest! We have our favorite recipes and our habits are seeming to match pretty well to this way of eating. BUT to avoid what my sweet friend Rachel describes as food aversions, I thought I’d try a few new recipes. Introducing my Whole30 Compliant Shepherd’s Pie!
We currently have a group text of fellow Whole30-ers where we send each other encouragement, we complain, and we show off the yummy food we create. One of the members made a beautiful shepherd’s pie and I was inspired!
Instead of looking up other Whole30 recipes, I researched regular, all-American shepherd’s pie and developed this recipe with that in mind. Yes, there are lots of potatoes in this recipe, but I tried to pack it full over other veggies as well.
Another thing I must note: I made this for my husband and me, but we also had my sister’s family (and two one-year-old babies) over who are not currently eating this way. It was a hit for everyone involved!
I really hate the idea that clean food has to taste bad. This recipe is comforting and delicious and you should make this immediately. It’s also especially cute in these cast iron dishes. My recipe made enough to fill a family size cast iron skillet as well as two individual size skillets (6-8 people).
