healthy shepherds pie recipe
Depending on how it’s prepared, a traditional shepherd’s pie can have up to 600 mg of sodium and about 200 calories. This recipe has only about 300 mg of sodium and 130 calories because it uses some turkey in the base, and some cauliflower instead of all potatoes.
A complete meal with protein, starch and vegetables, this healthier shepherd’s pie is equally as flavorful.
If you’re trying to ease into a healthier alternative, just mix your potatoes with the cauliflower and your carbs will take you further with a larger portion.
