Simple Paleo Shepard’s Pie

Paleo, Dairy Free, Grain Free, Allergy Friendly – Family Dinner – Serves 4

Hi, Mama! My boys try everything, but they don’t always eat everything. When it comes to my Simple 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.

Homemade Simple Paleo Shepard’s Pie that is Paleo AND easy to make. Enjoy dinner time again with minimal work and exceptional flavor the family will love.

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, so, I tend to stick to my original recipe.
