Recipe Notes

Hints & Tips

  • Sprinkle with ¼ cup grated cheese.
  • Substitute the vegetables with any other leftovers you may have in the fridge. After all that’s how Shepherd's Pie was invented!
  • Use beef instead of lamb and you will have a Cottage Pie.
  • Try a pastry top instead of mashed potatoes.
  • Substitute the plain mash with one of our other delicious mash recipes: Potato & Cauliflower Mash or Mashed Orange Veggies.

Low FODMAP Diet Tips

  • Leave out onion. Add fresh or dried herbs such as thyme or rosemary for extra flavour.
  • Use gluten free flour.
  • Choose stock free of gluten, onion and garlic.
  • Choose a lower lactose cheese.
