“Healthified” Shepherd’s Pie

Another warm comfort food inspired “healthified” dish. Make this dish less starchy by mashing cauliflower into the potatoes – you can’t even tell! I like to add in more vegetables than the traditional peas & corn.. mix in whatever veggies you have in the house! This comforting, creamy, hearty (and healthy!) dish won’t leave you feeling guilty after you reach for seconds.
