Easy Shepherd’s Pie

Easy Shepherd’s Pie


Easy Shepherd's Pie, orange sweet potato


This is an amazing paleo version of the traditional shepherd’s pie. I was never a fan of sweet potatoes growing up, especially not the marshmallow laden sweet potatoes on Thanksgiving. But I love sweet potatoes now! Maybe because I know how nutritious they are for me, rich in beta carotene which helps produce Vitamin A. You can change up the recipe and use orange or white sweet potatoes. You just might fool someone with the white sweet potatoes. Enjoy this gluten and dairy free recipe.
