Shepherd's Pie with Kumara Topping

SERVES 4 

Pie Ingredients
500-600g mince beef
2 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
1/2 green capsicum, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 tsp dried rosemary
3/4 tsp chilli powder
1/4 tsp sea salt to taste
1/4 tsp black pepper
6 tbsp tomato paste
1 tbsp almond meal + 2 tbsp water (may substitute 1 egg white)
Topping Ingredients
2 medium kumara, peeled and cubed
1 tbsp coconut oil or butter
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1/4 tsp sea salt

Method
Preheat oven to 175 degrees.
Combine the almond meal with water and set aside.
Heat pan on a medium heat and begin to brown mince. Once mince is partially browned, add chopped carrots, onions, capsicum and minced garlic. Cook on medium heat until carrots are soft, about 10 minutes.
Once carrots are soft, stir in tomato paste, almond meal mix, seasonings, salt and pepper.
Boil the kumara until tender. Then add all of the topping ingredients to a food processor or blender and process until smooth.
Transfer the meat filling to a casserole dish and top the meat filling with the kumara mash. Bake for 15 minutes.
