Hi Friend!

Shepherd’s Pie is one of those meals that has the ability to wrap its arms around you and make everything feel all warm and fuzzy inside. And with a name like Shepherd’s Pie one may picture those arms to be soft, little, fuzzy, white sheep arms. …or maybe that’s just me. If we want to be completely accurate, the name of this dish really should be called Cottage Pie. Shepherd’s Pie is reserved for a pie made with lamb, implying that the sheep were in great danger of the shepherd’s killing them and turning them into dinner! …and that doesn’t feel very warm and fuzzy.

But seriously, this Shepherd’s Pie is a fabulous beef version of the more original version made with lamb, but we’ll still call it Shepherd’s Pie. I make this pie with cauliflower puree instead of potatoes and with homemade bone broth. The ingredients are clean and nourishing making this a great meal for those of you wanting to encourage gut health.

My family loves this dish, sheep arms and all! I hope you will as well!
