Cauliflower Shepherd’s Pie

Low Carb Cauliflower Shepherds Pie

This low-carb version of the classic Shepherd’s Pie recipe replaces mashed potatoes with cauliflower. We used organic, canned veggies to make it a time saver.  (This is a paleo, grain-free and dairy-free alternative)

Ingredients:

  • 1 med/large cauliflower, cut into florets
  • ¼ cup Fresh Harvest Tuscan Herb olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • ¼ cup Fresh Harvest garlic olive oil
  • ¼ cup Fresh Harvest Traditional or Fig balsamic
  • 1 pound organic ground beef or lamb
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 can organic green beans (drained)
  • 1 can organic corn (drained)
  • 1 can organic peas and carrots (drained)
  • 1 can dice tomatoes with garlic and onion (drained)
  • 6 oz(1 pack) shredded Swiss cheese(omit for Paleo)

 

Directions:

 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a large casserole dish with your favorite Fresh Harvest olive oil and set aside.
  2. In a large pot, steam or boil cauliflower until very tender. Mash with the ¼ cup garlic olive oil. Add more if needed for a smooth consistency. Stir in shredded Swiss cheese.
  3. While the cauliflower is cooking, brown the ground meat and chop until fine. Drain fat. Add onion, canned tomatoes (drained), ¼ cup Fresh Harvest balsamic, and ¼ cup Fresh Harvest Tuscan Herb olive oil, stir well and cook until onions are translucent. Reduce heat to med/low and add canned corn, green beans, and peas and carrots (all drained). Cook while stirring occasionally until most liquid is reduced. The balsamic will make it thick.  
  4. Ladle the meat/veggie mix into the pan and spread evenly. Carefully spoon and spread the mashed cauliflower over the top.
  5. Bake for 20-30 minutes until lightly browned. Serve immediately. Keeps well in the fridge too!

Cranberry-Orange Olive Oil Cake

Cranberry Blood Orange Olive Oil Cake

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups + 1 Tbs. fresh squeezed orange juice
    (about 4-5 large navel oranges)
  • 1 Tbs. finely grated orange zest
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 5 large eggs
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups + 1 Tbs. Fresh Harvest Blood Orange Olive Oil
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
 
  • Position a rack in the middle of the oven, remove anyracks above, and crank up the heat to 350°F (175°C). Coat a 12-cup Bundt or tube pan with 1 tbs. blood orange extra virgin olive oil and set aside.

  • Finely grate the zest of 2 oranges, and squeeze 4 of them. You should have 1 1/2 cups and 1 reserved tablespoon of orange juice of juice; if not, squeeze the 5th orange. Set aside.

  • Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl and set aside.

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, or with a hand held mixer in a large bowl, beat the eggs on medium-high speed until well combined, about 1 minute. Slowly pour in the granulated sugar and continue beating until thick and pale yellow, about 3 minutes. On low speed, alternate adding the flour mixture and blood orange extra virgin olive oil, starting and ending with the flour, and beat until just a few wisps of flour remain. Pour in the orange juice, zest and dried cranberries and whirl for a few seconds to bring the batter together.

  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake until a cake tester comes out with a few moist crumbs clinging to it, about 1 1/4 hours. If the top is browning too much as the cake bakes, cover lightly with foil. Transfer to a wire rack and cool for 15 minutes and then turn the cake out on to a rack over a sheet pan.  Mix together 1 tablespoon reserved orange juice with confectioners’ sugar to form a glaze.  Pour slowly and evenly over the warm cake.  Serve warm.
