Savory Seasonal Shepherd's Pie (Gluten-Free)

Celiac.com 01/16/2014 - Okay, so I'm a huge fan of shepherd's pie, going so far to freeze huge batches to eat for weeks after I make it.

I'm always keen to try new takes on shepherd's pie to satisfy my culinary curiosity. This version combines seasonal root vegetables like carrots, rutabaga, and parsnip with lamb, peas onions and garlic in a rich tomato sauce to serve up a big helping of shepherd's pie love.

  • 3 cups prepared mashed potatoes
  • 1 pound ground lamb
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh mushrooms, sautéed, optional
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 leek, white only, chopped
  • 3 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 parsnip, peeled and diced
  • 1 small rutabaga, chopped
  • ¼ cup frozen green peas
  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • ½ cup milk, or cream, as needed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ⅓ teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 tablespoons grated Roman cheese
  • 1-2 teaspoons butter for cooking

Directions:
In a medium pan, over medium-high heat, sweat the mushrooms until they give up their water. Remove from heat, drain well, and set aside.

Heat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

In a medium pan, sauté leeks and onion in a bit of butter until translucent.

Place the celery, carrots, parsnip, rutabaga, and peas into a large saucepan and fill with 1 inch of water.

Bring to a boil, cover, and steam for 15 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.

Meanwhile, break the ground lamb into a large skillet, and heat to medium.

Cook and stir until lamb is browned. Drain off excess grease.

To the lamb, add mushrooms, onion and garlic, salt, pepper, thyme, garlic powder and onion powder to the tomato sauce. Stir in the steamed vegetables and mix well.

Transfer everything to a greased 7x11 inch or 9x11 inch casserole dish (depending on how thick you like the potatoes).

Mix enough milk or cream into the mashed potatoes to make them spreadable.

Spread them over the top of the meat and vegetable mixture and garnish freely with Romano cheese.

Bake for 20-25 minutes until the top is browned and the inside is heated through.

Doesn't have to be this involved to make GF shepherd's pie.

Yep, we really have it good when you think about it. The only treatment for us is eating gluten free. No pills, no chemo, no radiation. And there is plenty for us to eat, especially now with so many gluten-free foods on the market that are tasty. Labeling laws make it easier too. 20 years ago, th...

D3 should be taken every 3-7days not daily. It stays in your body for awhile and is easy to OD with causing nausea and vomiting.

I am only 7 weeks gluten free and it hasn't been that bad. I am a silent celiac so I may be glutening myself without knowing it. However, it hasn't been as bad as I thought. There are a lot of foods I can eat. When I have had to eat out, I bring my own salad. At home, whatever I prepare is gl...

Thank you all for replying. It's good to know that it's not just me. It gives me (and hopefully the other noobs) some comfort to know that it's normal for the ups and downs to happen. I keep trying to tell myself to be patient with it but it's so hard to be able to look down the road further than...

Thank you for your reply. I did make sure to keep eating gluten before getting tested. I'm still unsure whether or not I should ask my doctor to run the rest of the tests in the celiac panel.
