Cottage Pie with Cauliflower Mash

shepherds pie paleo recipe gluten-free

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.

  1. yay another lectin warrior!!

  2. I love this idea! I can’t have tomato due to an allergy. Me and tomatoes do NOT mix. I do a variation of this using sweet potato mash. Mix onions or leeks into the mash and mmmm hmmmm. Next time I see a nice local, crisp looking cauli this will be its fate!

    • Ooh, you’re making me hungry. Forgot to get meat out of the freezer, dur, so fish tonight instead with leeks and mushrooms. Yum.

      • I’m absolutely loving your ‘clean’ diet, or paleo diet. It feels so good on my body, and besides factors that I can’t control I barely react anymore! I might try mushrooms myself, but I read somewhere they’re high in lectin as well so I might wait.

      • That’s fab to hear, Nele. Long may it continue. I am releasing it shortly, so thanks for guinea-pigging it! Any other comments on it before I do, please PM me.
