Steph’s Slimmer Shepard’s Pie Recipe!

Hi Darlings!

I have just returned to London after the most fabulous trip to Corfu, Greece. After Pielanding in London all I wanted to do was have a healthy, home-cooked meal after the summer holiday indulgence!

With the weather slowly turning cooler, sigh, I felt like something hearty and warm. My Slimmer Shepard’s Pie recipe is the perfect dish. Packed with lean protein, lots of vegetables and complex carbs it hits the spot!


  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 sticks of celery
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 tbsp of tomato puree
  • 100g of frozen peas
  • 300g 2% fat turkey breast mince (or lean beef mince)
  • Sprinkle of mixed herbs
  • Salt and pepper for seasoning
  • 1 pot vegetable stock
  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • Dash of milk


  1. Finely chop the onion and celery, grate the carrot and crush the garlic.
  2. Heat up a saucepan and cook the onion and garlic in a little olive oil until soft.
  3. Add in the turkey mince and cook until browned.
  4. Add in carrots, celery, tomato puree and mixed herbs.
  5. Pour over vegetable stock (made using pack instructions) and boil to reduce it for 5 minutes.
  6. Bring to a simmer and cook, uncovered, for 25 mins. Season well.
  7. Meanwhile, turn the oven onto 220C and make the sweet potato mash. In a large saucepan, cover potatoes which you’ve peeled and chopped, in salted cold water, bring to the boil and simmer until
  8. Drain and mash well with a little milk of choice.
  9. Add the meat into a ovenproof dish. Spoon on the mash (or pipe it if you are fancy) to cover.
  10. Cook for 25-30 mins, or until the topping is golden.

I usually serve mine with a fresh green salad. I love taking the leftovers for lunch or freezing a portion for another day!
