Our family often struggles at dinner hour like so many other families to find recipes that make everyone happy. With so many different opinions in my household on what is liked sometimes I want to give up. We eat a very healthy diet 90% of the time. Most of our meat is organic along with some fruits and vegetables. That being said I’m not a stickler but I do think that meat without hormones or antibiotics really is the way to go
We often hear dieticians say to shop the outer perimeter of a grocery store. If you think about it the outer perimeter in most grocery stores is all the fresh items from meat to vegetables to dairy. These are the items we need to be stocking our fridges with. No processed or preservative rich foods. Going organic just takes it a little further. Listen, this isn’t a forum on natural, organic or commodity foods. I’m not an expert and not forcing anyone to do anything they aren’t comfortable with. This is just my opinion and how we eat as a family. The other thing I try to do is keep starchy carbs and high fat foods out of our daily diet. There are so many great ways to lighten up food but create incredibly tasty meals.
When I set out to create a new dish for the family using ground chicken my mind quickly went to Sheppard’s Pie. I grew up eating it with beef and mashed potatoes. My Mom is British and as I’ve mentioned before she’s a wonderful cook. It was always a meal I enjoyed and looked forward to. Let’s be honest we all love comfort food.
Instead of beef I’ve used chicken and replaced mashed potatoes with cauliflower puree. The rich slightly smoky sauce, the crisp vegetables and creamy cauliflower along with the crunch of the breadcrumbs won my family over BIG TIME!! The kids were literally sighing as they ate it saying how good it was. Even those who hate cauliflower (I’ve heard those people exist) will absolutely love this!! The greens in it give it a little punch of extra vitamins too!! Just try and stop yourself at one helping!
