skinnymixer's Rustic Shepherd's Pie

Shepherd’s Pie is a true winter classic… A great way to create a budget friendly, veggie filled meal in the Thermomix that is both delicious and comforting.

I opted to use low carb potatoes in mine, but you could easily substitute them with sweet potato or alternatively this popular mashed cauliflower recipe. To make this a complete meal, you can steam vegetables from step 5 if you wish, and you can also opt to make it dairy free or top with grated cheese too! Enjoy.

    Made this tonight and amazing! Best shepherds pie I have ever made. I was a bit naughty and put some grated cheese on top of the mashed potato to try and tempt this kids and 2/3 tried it so success 😂 thanks for a great recipe will become a staple in our house.

    So, so, so good!! I was craving comfort food in the middle of the Melbourne winter and this absolutely fitted the bill. I doubled the lamb mince but cooked that on the stovetop, and doubled everything in the sauce except the water (I used 1.5 times the recipe). I threw in a mix of frozen peas, corn and capsicum and the result was the hearty, delicious warm hug I was hoping for. Best of all, we have leftovers for tomorrow. Winning! Thanks for yet another first rate recipe Nik!

    This is a great family friendly recipe, it was enough for two adults and two kids, which I served in individual ramekins. I added bacon to the mash, that went down really well! I expected my kids to turn up their noses as they don’t normally like all-in-one meals, but both readily ate this quickly! Great flavour, quick and easy.
