Gluten Free Shepherd's Pie

If you are looking for a gluten free Shepherd’s Pie recipe then look no further. This British classic is simple to make and will light up your family’s faces when you lay the dish down on a cold winter’s night.

There is very little effort required to make the dish gluten free and you can even make a couple of adjustments to make a dairy free Shepherd’s Pie.

The important ingredients to substitute for a gluten free version are your stock cubes (we use Knorr as they are 100% gluten free) and the Worcestershire sauce (find a GF alternative in the Free From section of all major supermarkets).

Serve up with a good portion of Tenderstem Broccoli and you have yourself a delicious and nutritious evening meal that everyone will enjoy.

Instructions
  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the carrot, onion and garlic. Turn the heat down to low, stick the lid on, and leave to soften for 5 minutes.
  2. Turn up the heat to medium to high and add your mince to the pan. Fry, stirring constantly, until the mince is brown (about 5 minutes). Drain any excess fat.
  3. Crumble in your Knorr beef stock cube and add the tomato puree and gluten free Worcestershire sauce. Fry for another minute.
  4. Add your tin of chopped tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. You might like to add any spice at this stage such as Cayenne Pepper or Cumin to give it an extra edge. Bring to a simmer and then cover loosely with the lid.
  5. Whilst the meat is cooking, boil the potatoes for 10-15 minutes or until you can't pick them up with a fork. If you are making any extra veg such as Tenderstem Broccoli then now is about the time to get these boiling in a separate pan.
  6. Drain the potatoes and then mash with the butter and milk until smooth and creamy.
  7. Find a large ovenproof dish and add the meat mixture making sure to evenly spread it throughout. Then spoon on the mashed potato and spread over the meat mixture using the back of a fork. Now is the time to sprinkle on top your grated cheese.
  8. Place the dish under the grill until the cheese is bubbling. If not using cheese then grill until you just start to see burn marks on the potato to give it a lovely crisp.
  9. Serve with a healthy portion of Tenderstem Broccoli and maybe even a cheeky glass of red wine.
