Shepherd’s Pie

1-1 1/2 lbs grass-fed ground beef
*3-4 Tbsp Gluten-free Worcestershire sauce (see picture)
4-5 Medium parsnips
1 Onion
2-3 Medium Zucchini
Oil for cooking
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

*Most Worcestershire sauce is made with gluten. Store brands are typically made with gluten and high fructose corn syrup. Below is a picture of a brand that I found at  Whole Foods. Hannaford also carries this brand. 

Chop the onion and saute over medium heat with oil and Worcestershire sauce until slightly cooked (approximately 5 minutes)

Add ground beef and continue to cook over medium heat

While the ground beef is cooking, prepare mashed parsnips, recipe from Keirsten’s Kitchen can be found HERE

For shorthand, simply chop, boil, add butter or chicken stock and mash

Prepare the zucchini by chopping and sauteing over medium heat for approximately 5 minutes

Add sea salt and black pepper to taste

In a baking dish, layer the ground beef mixture first
Add mashed parsnips, one lump at a time to spread evenly
Add zucchini as the top layer

Bake at 425 for approximately 12-15 minutes
Let cool for a few minutes before serving


Mashed Parsnips

2-3 Parsnips
A few slices of red onion
Splash of cream (half and half or raw milk OK)  
Black pepper and Himalayan sea salt for seasonings

Cut the parsnips into small chunks and put into a pot with water
(Enough water to cover parsnips in the pot)

Bring a to a boil
continue to cook over medium-high heat for approximately 20 minutes, or until the parsnips are soft and break apart easily with a fork

Strain the parsnips
Add butter, to taste
Add black pepper and sea salt, to taste
Add a splash of cream (or milk/ half and half)
Mash with a fork or other utensil
Top with red onion slices

Enjoy! : )

Parsnip Chips

2-3 Parsnips
Oil for cooking (coconut is best)
(I also used black pepper and Himalayan sea salt for seasoning)

Slice the parsnip into thin slices

Heat oil in a frying pan with just enough oil to coat the slices
Cook over medium to medium-high heat until they begin to brown

Flip and continue to cook until the other side is brown
(approximately 5-6 minutes on the first side and 3-4 minutes once flipped)
*Once they begin to brown, they will cook fast!

Let cool on a paper towel
(Paper towel will absorb excess oil)
Season with sea salt and black pepper

Enjoy!  : )
