A healthier version of this classic, comforting meal? Yes please!
In addition to the ground beef in the recipe, the “meat” of this Shepherd’s Pie also consists of fiber and protein-rich lentils! The fiber makes each bite more filling while also supporting digestive regularity, detoxification and blood sugar balance. Consuming adequate protein each meal helps you to feel full longer, reduce cravings, boost your metabolism and build muscle!
Sweet potatoes are used in this recipe instead of white potatoes, which sweetens this Shepherd’s Pie and adds a delicious twist on a classic recipe! Another option is to use mashed cauliflower, or a sweet potato and cauliflower combo.
This Shepherd’s Pie recipe makes a lot of food, which means you’ll have leftovers to enjoy for days!
