Ingredients:

200g cauliflower, cut into florets

30g butter

20mL extra virgin olive oil

1 garlic clove, crushed

50g brown onion, sliced

80g button mushrooms, sliced

75g lean beef mince

5g Keto-Fit Bone Broth

20g tomato paste

65g carrot, peeled and grated

15g green peas

1 pinch sea salt

2 pinches black pepper

30g cheddar cheese, grated

1 pinch flat-leaf parsley, to serve

 

Method:

  • Preheat your oven to 180°
  • Bring a pot of water to the boil and cook cauliflower for 10-15 minutes, or until soft enough to mash. Drain, and transfer to a food processor along with butter (approx. 1 ½ tb), garlic, and a pinch of pepper. Blitz until smooth, then set aside.
  • Meanwhile, heat the olive oil (approx. 1 tb) in a frying pan over a medium heat. Sauté the onion (approx. ½ small onion) for two minutes, then add the mushrooms (approx. 6 small mushrooms) and brown for 2-3 minutes. Add the beef and cook for a further 4-5 minutes until cooked through.
  • Dissolve the bone broth powder in 150mL of boiling water, then pour into the frying pan. Bring to the boil, then add the tomato paste (approx. 1 tb), carrot (approx. ½ medium carrot) and peas (approx. 1 ½ tb).
  • Cook for 5-10 minutes until sauce has thickened, then transfer to a large ramekin or small ceramic baking dish. Spoon the cauliflower over the mince mixture and top with grated cheddar (approx. ¼ cup).
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until the crust has started to brown in places.
  • Sprinkle parsley over the top prior to serving.
