Healthy Shepherd's Pie with Ground Turkey

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"Old fashioned, "stick to your ribs" comfort food decadence minus the guilt. The star here is the cauliflower mashed "potatoes" that will have your family amazed at their authentic taste. It's a versatile dish that I've made with frozen and/or fresh cauliflower and subsidized with a potato or two. The key here is just to not boil the cauliflower."

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add cauliflower and saute, stirring often to prevent it from getting too brown, until soft enough to mash with a fork, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl, add Greek yogurt, and mash with a fork. Pour in chicken broth a little at a time, continuing to mash until fluffy and smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Cook ground turkey and garlic in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and discard grease. Stir in soup mix and flour until combined, then slowly add water and stir until creamy but not runny. Simmer until thickened, 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Spread turkey mixture in the bottom of a 9x13-inch casserole dish. Layer with frozen corn, cauliflower mixture, and Cheddar cheese.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Sprinkle with french-fried onions and bake until browned, about 5 minutes more. Remove from the oven and allow to sit for a few minutes before serving.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can add a little bit of instant potato to the mashed potatoes if you want a thicker, fluffier texture or if you've added too much broth.
  • A frozen corn and pea mix can be used instead of corn, if preferred.
