Clean turkey and sweet potato shepherd’s pie

 Clean Shepherds pie
Eating clean doesn’t have to be plain salads and cold tomatoes. The number one thing I like about this lifestyle is that you can take any comfort food and find a clean way to eat it. You don’t have to miss out on anything!
Last weekend I needed some comfort food. It’s cold, it’s not quite spring, and I wanted that lazy Sunday lunch feeling. I wanted Shepherd’s pie
Two very simple changes and voila; clean!

You can also do a half and half like in the photo if your other half wants a more traditional pie 🙂

The below makes enough for four, we doubled up and had it two days running – making Monday evening post work dinner smooth sailing. 

Serves 4

  • 500g lean Turkey mince
  • 5 x carrots, chopped small
  • 1 x white onion, chopped finely
  • 2 x garlic cloves, chopped finely
  • Shepherd’s pie mix
  • 2 x tbs balsamic vinegar
  • 2 x medium sweet potatoes
Heat oven to 180c

In a big pan, brown the onion, Turkey and garlic.

Add the carrots, shepherd’s pie mix and balsamic

Bring to the boil, then turn down to a simmer as you finish the potatoes.


Chop potatoes into small chunks and boil until soft (15-20 mins)

Drain, put back into the pan, and mash until smooth.


Pour the Turkey mix into a casserole dish.

Layer the mash over the top.

Cook for 30 minutes.
