Healthy Shepards Pie

Here as promised is the Healthy Shepards Pie Recipe! This is from Clean Eating Magazine seen here. I made this as the New Years Meal!

Here is the picture of how I made it. I substituted Sweet Potatoes instead of white, so with the bad night lighting makes it look really yellow, but healthy!

Here is a pic from the magazine. Much better with light! I need a new camera!


  • 1 lb Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 clove garlic, whole, plus 1 tsp garlic, minced, divided
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tbsp chives, chopped
  • Sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste
  • 4 tsp olive oil, divided• 1 lb lean ground turkey breast
  • 1 yellow onion, finely chopped (1 cup)
  • 3 medium carrots, halved lengthwise and cut into half moons (about 1 cup)
  • 1 celery stalk, diced (about 1/3 cup)
  • 1 tsp fresh rosemary leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Bring potatoes and whole garlic clove to a boil in a pot of water set over high heat. Cook until potatoes are tender, about 15 to 20 minutes, then drain well. Mash potatoes and garlic with a potato masher, ricer or food mill until smooth. Add buttermilk and chives and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, heat 1 tsp oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add turkey and cook, stirring often and breaking meat into small pieces with a wooden spoon. Cook until no pink remains, about 8 minutes. Drain and discard fat; set turkey aside.
  4. Heat 2 tsp oil in skillet over same heat. Add onion, carrots, celery and rosemary and cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are soft, about 8 minutes. Add reserved turkey, broth and tomato paste and continue to cook until most of liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes. Stir in peas, transfer mixture to a shallow baking dish and cover with mashed potatoes in an even layer. Run a fork over top of potatoes in a crosshatch pattern or swirl with a spatula or the back of a spoon. Brush top with remaining 1 tsp oil and bake in oven until filling is bubbling and top is golden brown, about 30 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
