Make this Potato & Cauliflower Shepherd’s Pie for a lower carb comfort food recipe that is ready in minutes for the perfect meal prep recipe or family dinner!


Units Scale
  • 1 pound golden potatoes, diced
  • 3 cups cauliflower florets, steamed
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 56 Tablespoons almond milk (or non-dairy milk)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 pound ground turkey sausage or turkey
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1 Tablespoon molasses
  • 1 Tablespoon Tamari (or coconut aminos for a soy-free option)
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Optional 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • Parsley to garnish


Make AheadPrepare the potato and cauliflower mash and the turkey and mushroom mixture ahead of time. When ready to eat, layer the ingredients, and bake them for 20 minutes. Just be sure to reheat the two layers separately before combining them to ensure they spread evenly! 


For a microwave alternative, boil the potatoes and cauliflower separately on the stove top, and drain them completely. 

No blender? Use a bowl to mash and mix the potato and cauliflower along with the milk and spices. 

For a smoother potato and cauliflower mixture, add an additional 1-2 more Tablespoons of milk or broth.
