For the filling:

  • 1 lb lean ground beef (you can also use ground turkey or chicken)

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 2 carrots, diced

  • 2 celery stalks, diced

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 cup frozen peas

  • 1 cup beef or vegetable broth

  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste

  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

For the mashed potato topping:

  • 1.5 lbs potatoes, peeled and cubed

  • 1/4 cup non-fat Greek yogurt

  • Salt and pepper to taste


1. Prepare the filling:

  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chopped onion, carrots, and celery. Sauté until vegetables are softened, about 5-7 minutes.
  2. Add minced garlic and cook for another minute.
  3. Add the ground beef to the skillet and cook until browned, breaking it up with a spoon as it cooks.
  4. Stir in tomato paste and Worcestershire sauce. Cook for 1-2 minutes.
  5. Add beef or vegetable broth and frozen peas. Bring to a simmer and cook for about 10-15 minutes until the mixture thickens slightly. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

2. Prepare the mashed potato topping:

  1. While the filling is simmering, place the peeled and cubed potatoes in a pot of salted water. Bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes are fork-tender, about 15-20 minutes.
  2. Drain the potatoes and return them to the pot. Mash them using a potato masher or fork.
  3. Stir in the non-fat Greek yogurt until well combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

3. Assemble the Shepherd’s Pie:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Transfer the beef filling into a baking dish or individual ramekins.
  3. Spread the mashed potatoes over the top of the filling, covering it completely.
  4. Use a fork to create some texture on the surface of the mashed potatoes, if desired.
  5. Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes until the mashed potatoes are golden brown on top and the filling is bubbly around the edges.
  6. Remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.
