Shepherd’s Pie by Chris Kendall
Creamy, thick, authentically tasty and satiating!
This is a Cravings Busters recipe that really “sticks to your bones” and leaves you feeling full for hours. Makes 1 large serving.
✤ 4 Roma Tomatoes (1 lb / 460 g)
✤ 1/2 Cauliflower (1.25 lb / 575 g)
✤ 4 Stalks of Celery (.33 lb / 150 g)
✤ 1 Portobello Mushroom (.5 lb / 230 g)
✤ 1/8 cup Salt-Free Raw Olives
✤ 1/8 cup Sun Dried Tomatoes
✤ *4 Green Onions (.08 lb / 36 g)
✤ 1/2 Lemon (.125 lb / 75 g)
✤ 1/8 cup Raw Sesame Seeds / or Hemp Seeds (my preference)
Optional: (added Dec 2019)
✤ 1/4 cup Walnuts (soak 4- 6 hours if desired)
✤ A Good Blender (I highly recommend the Vitamix, get yours with FREE Shipping here)
✤ Dehydrator (I recommend the Excalibur, get yours with FREE shipping here)
1. Finely chop/dice 1/3 of the cauliflower, 1/2 of the celery, 1/2 of the tomatoes and place in a small square casserole dish.
2. Blend remaining tomatoes with sun dried tomatoes, olives, 2 green onions, the rest of the celery until smooth and creamy.
3. Add the mushroom and optional soaked and drained walnuts to the blender and pulse very slow to retain a crumble, alternately finely chop the mushroom and add it to the casserole dish.
4.Pour the tomato “Gravy” over the chipped /diced tomatoes cauliflower and mushroom, stir well.
5. Wash your blender, optionally soak remaining cauliflower in hot tap water for 2 minutes to soften.
6. Place in the blender with the bottom white ends of the 2 remaining green onions, the lemon juice and the hemp seeds or raw sesame seeds. Blend to desired consistency, some like their mashed potatoes smooth some like them slightly lumpy. (Best to use a Vitamix or other high powered blender with the tamper. If you do not have one use celery sticks to force the cauliflower into the blades until smooth as you can get it.)
7. Finely dice the remaining green onion stems and mix into the “mashed potatoes”.
8. Pour cauliflower mash over the base layer and smooth it out.
9. Optional to place in the dehydrator at 115°F – 118°F for 2 – 4 hours to warm and slightly crisp the top, otherwise it’s ready to serve!

What if you don’t have a dehydrator could you do it in the oven? And of so for how long?
Indeed you could although most ovens do not have a temperature low enough to dehydrate and instead cook. If its a gas oven you can simply slightly prop the door open and place it inside, the pilot light warms enough to dehydrate. Otherwise I am not too sure besides proping open, setting at lowest temperature, possibly turing the oven on and off and accepting that the heat may go high enough to slightly cook it. Otherwise it is pretty darn great as is without dehydrating 🙂 Hope you enjoy
I am severely allergic to celery. Anaphylactic allergic. Is there a suitable substitute for the celery or should I just leave it out and not worry about it?
Great question, it would be fine to leave it out of to sub it with Bok Choy stem 🙂 Let me know how u enjoy it 🙂
hey! thanx for the recipe!
but the last part of “mashed potatoes” is really bitter
is it getting bitter in purpose? how it tastes to you?
what you’ll recommend at this situation?
More than my Pleasure 🙂
The bitterness will depend upon each cauliflower, some are more bitter others are less. The ones I have used lately are mild and really nice. If you want to try to remove some extra bitterness you can either try soaking the Cauliflower in Hot water (not boiling but as hot as you dare) or you can try Freezing it the night before and thawing it before using in the recipe. Hope this helps! 🙂
