ReeFit: Shepherd’s Pie Made Healthy by Miss Nutritionist


As part of ReeFit before Christmas, I had the pleasure of meeting up with Rosie Millen, AKA Miss Nutritionist! Look we dressed the same!!!
With Miss Nutritionist
When we met, Rosie offered to help add some enjoyment back into my diet. After I completed my detox, I began to fall into a slightly boring routine and it needed a bit of a shake up.

Rosie said she could transform my fave meals into real healthy options. So I chose Shepherd’s Pie which I love!! Here is the Miss Nutritionist version – it’s so yummy that I thought I’d share it with you!

Miss Nutritionist Shepherd’s Pie

2 tsp virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed
1 onion, peeled and sliced
2 sticks celery, washed and sliced
900g/2lb organic minced lamb
1 small butternut squash, peeled, halved, de-seeded and cut into small pieces
450ml vegetable stock (made with 1 vegetable cube or your own stock)
420g can ‘no added salt’ red kidney beans
4 tomatoes washed and sliced in half
2 red or yellow peppers, washed, de-seeded and sliced
2tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley
4 sweet potatoes, steamed for 15 mins until soft, then mashed.

Heat olive oil in a large saucepan. 
Add the garlic, onion, celery and lamb andsimmer until cooked. 
Add the squash and heat for a further 3 mins, stirring. 
Pour in the stock and bring to a boil over a medium heat. 
Simmer gently for ten mins, stirring occasionally. 
Add the kidney beans, peppers and tomatoes.
Simmer for a further 5 mins until the squash is just tender. 
Stir in the parsley.

Bake for 15 mins at 200 degrees / gas 6.

I’ve cooked this up a few times now and loved it. Really easy and super yummy!
