Keto Shepherd’s Pie Without Cauliflower Ingredients

– Celery root: Celery root is a low carb vegetable that makes a great substitute for potatoes in this recipe. Peel and cube just as you do potatoes.

– Ground beef: I used ground beef in this recipe, but you could also use ground lamb or turkey.

– Onion: I used a yellow onion, but you could also use a white or red onion.

– Garlic: I used fresh garlic in this recipe, but you could also use garlic powder.

– Tomato paste: Tomato paste is a great way to add flavor and richness to this dish.

– Oregano: I used dried oregano, but you could also use fresh.

– Thyme: I used dried thyme, but you could also use fresh.

– Salt: I used kosher salt in this recipe.

– Pepper: I used freshly ground black pepper in this recipe.

– Beef broth: Beef broth is used to help thin out the tomato paste and add some additional flavor.

– Cheddar cheese: I used sharp cheddar cheese, but you could also use mild or medium.

– Heavy cream: Heavy cream is used to make the mashed celery root topping creamy and smooth. Make sure to use full fat heavy cream.

– Celery: I used celery for some additional flavor and texture, but you could also leave it out.

– Butter: Butter adds flavor and creaminess to the mashed celery root.
