Funnily enough, I have been thinking about how to make a simple Truly gluten free cottage pie without tomatoes for a while. Why no tomatoes? Because they contain lectins and I have knocked them out of the TGF Clean diet for that reason (more to come on this; I am trialling it myself currently).
Anyway, then along comes a recipe from Elana Amsterdam that, with a couple of tweaks, will suit. She is clearly thinking along the same lectin lines as me. Check it out here: Paleo Shepherd’s Pie.
I love the idea of topping it with cauliflower mash and also adding a dash of paprika. Clearly, she calls it a Shepherd’s Pie – and you could do that with lamb, but using beef makes it a Cottage Pie actually: moot point!
Leave out the bacon, of course, as pork is not grass fed, and use a suitable TGF beef or vegetable stock, not chicken. And be careful your paprika is gluten free and not mixed with wheat to make it cheaper (some are!)
Yum, I think I’ll have this tonight.
