Simple Paleo Shepard’s Pie


My boys try everything, but they don’t always eat everything. When it comes to my Paleo Shepard’s pie recipe, I know plates will be empty before leaving the table. Making this dish one of my family’s favorite meals.


I’ve also made this dish with mashed sweet potatoes as a topping and mashed parsnips. All three renditions are delicious. I personally like the sweetness the sweet potatoes give the dish, but since my toddlers love cauliflower, I tend to stick to my original recipe.
