  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the ground turkey or chicken and cook until browned. Remove the meat from the skillet and set aside.

  3. In the same skillet, add the diced onion, minced garlic, carrots, and celery. Sauté until the vegetables are tender, about 5-7 minutes.

  4. Add the cooked meat back to the skillet along with the frozen peas, chicken or vegetable broth, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce (if using), dried thyme, salt, and pepper. Stir well to combine, then simmer for 5 minutes.

  5. While the meat mixture simmers, steam the cauliflower florets until tender. Drain the cauliflower and transfer it to a large bowl.

  6. Add the butter or ghee and almond milk to the bowl with the cauliflower. Mash the cauliflower until smooth and creamy. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  7. Transfer the meat mixture to a baking dish and spread the mashed cauliflower evenly on top.

  8. Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the filling is bubbling and the top is golden brown.

  9. Remove from the oven and let it cool slightly. Garnish with fresh parsley before serving.

Enjoy your healthy Shepherd's Pie, packed with protein and veggies, while keeping your macronutrient and calorie goals in mind!
