Potato-less Shepherd’s Pie

This is one of our favorite dishes at our recipe nights, and we had have a lot people ask for the recipe, so here it is.

This recipe was made by Dr. Justin’s wife and it comes straight from her blog.


  • 1 1/2 lbs grass fed ground beef
  • 1 finely chopped onion
  • 4 tbsp of sun-dried tomato paste
  • 1/2 of Seitenbacher Gluten-Free Brown Gravy Mix package
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 worchestire sauce
  • 1 large squash cut in pieces
  • 1 bag frozen cauliflower (12oz)
  • 1 1/2 cup raw shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups of frozen peas, carrots, green beans, corn mix
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt


Okay basically I just came up with this since I didn’t have potatoes, so you’re gonna have to tweak the quantities because I’m trying to guess what I used since I just did everything by trying it out.

Brown your ground beef and make sure that there aren’t any big chunks, add the small chopped onion, keep cooking it until the onion is almost clear. Add half gravy mix package, water, and Worchestire sauce and tomato paste. The whole thing is gonna thicken up a bit, Add veggie mix. and turn the heat down. Make sure that your veggies are covered with the liquid, if not add a bit more water. Let it cook until your veggies are soft. Add salt and paper to taste. If you would it to be a bit thicker you can add some gluten free flour ( I use red mill). Once done put your meat and veggie mix on a glass baking pan.

Put your cauliflower and squash in a boiling pot. Add water until they are covered, add garlic and onion powder and a pinch of sea salt. Bring to a boil. Cook it until the cauliflower and squash are soft. Once they’re soft drain and put them in a food processor. Add 1 cup of raw cheese. Run your food processor ( I let mine go for like 10 mins) until it gets to a mashed potatoes texture, add sea salt to taste.

Once your cauliflower and squash mix is done dump it on top of your meat and veggie mix that is already in your baking pan.

Sprinkle the rest of the raw shredded cheese on top bake at 350 for 10 mins and then turn your broiler on on high until the cheese is golden brown…
