Whole30 Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie

This is not my recipe —I made this a while back and plan to make this next week!

It was amazing and perfect for meal prepping because it tastes good reheated and even cold. you can add so many veggies to this and the kiddos won’t even notice.

I plan on adding some spinach or power greens when I cook the meat to add even more veggies to this dish!

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 375℉.

  4. Once the carrots are soft, stir in tomato paste, water, seasonings, salt and pepper.

  5. For the topping: Steam or bake (at 375℉) the sweet potatoes until fork tender. Then add all of the topping ingredients to a food processor (or blender) and process until smooth. 

  6. Final step: Put the meat filling into a casserole dish (9 x 9 inch dish will work) and top the meat filling with the sweet potatos. add some sea salt and chili powder.
