This has been a really yummy meal. I got it from CFSCC.


Paleo Shepherd’s Pie:

Picture also from CFSCC.

1.5 lbs. Ground turkey or ground beef
4 Parsnips – pealed and grated  (if you don’t have parsnips you can use carrots. this is still very good)
1 Zucchini – sliced
1/2 C mushrooms – sliced
1/2 C Red Onion, chopped
1/2 C Cilantro, chopped
1 stalk Celery, sliced
1 Slice Bacon
8 egg whites
1 Tbl Olive Oil
1 tsp. Onion powder
1 tsp. Celery Salt or celtic grey salt
1 T Italian Seasoning

Preheat oven to 450F.
Peal and grate the parsnips. Add onion powder, pepper, olive oil and set aside. Slowly cook the bacon slice, remove bacon strip and leave bacon fat in the pan. Pan fry the onions, ground turkey, with Italian Seasoning, do not over cook. We’re gonna cook it some more. Add zucchini, mushrooms, and celery and saute in the bacon fat. Combine with meat ingredients and mix thoroughly. Let cool down a couple minutes.

Mix 4 egg whites with the cilantro and mix into the meat & veggies. Take the other 4 egg whites and mix with parsnips.
Spray the bottom of a baking pan with olive oil. Add the meat and veggies, then cover with the parsnip mixture.
(Don’t smooth the tops of the parsnips too much, it browns better if you don’t).
