Is there a dish more comforting than Shepherd’s Pie? We don’t think so! Here’s a healthier take on a classic with Turkey and Sweet Potato. 


Ingredients

Scale

Topping

  • 3 cups (800 g) mashed sweet potato
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) nondairy milk
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste

Turkey Filling

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cups (540 g) leftover cooked veggies
  • 2 Tbsp poultry seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 Tbsp arrowroot
  • 2 cups (480 ml) chicken broth (or turkey stock)
  • 2 cups (300 g) leftover turkey, chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 400ºF/200ºC.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the mashed potato and milk. Season with sea salt and pepper and set aside.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and saute for 3-5 minutes until it starts to soften. Add the leftover veggies and saute for 5-7 minutes. Stir in the poultry seasoning and add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Whisk in the arrowroot and add the chicken broth or turkey stock and cook until it starts to thicken. Stir in the chopped turkey and cook until warmed through.
  • Place the turkey mixture in a casserole dish and top with the sweet potatoes, spreading them out in an even layer. Place in the oven and cook for 25-30 minutes, until the sweet potatoes start to brown and the casserole begins to bubble.
  • Remove from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
