I have a shepherds pie to pop in the oven for dinner tonight. I simmered the potatoes and cauliflower in nonfat milk...they came out rich, creamy, and really delicious when blended together with some roasted garlic.

I tried mashed cauliflower with Greek yoghurt and it was really good. The Greek yoghurt is thicker so helps give the cauliflower a better texture.

I second the roasted squash idea posted earlier. I made my shepherds pie with half that and half potato last time and it was phenomenal. Next time I'm going to try it using just the squash.

Roasted Butternut squash puree would be nice and give you the mouth feel of potatoes

Dont use too much milk in the cauliflower as they are far "wetter" than potatoes.

Another, easy to handle option for topping is mashed swede (US=Rutabaga)... bright orange and super tasty and absorbs more liquid, so a nice way for the flavours to blend

My husband and I want to try a healthy shepherd's pie tonight. I was looking to see if anyone had any ideas. Here's my plan so far:

Instead of ground beef, we'll use ground turkey.
Veggies like peas, celery, carrots and a sauce made from tomatoes
Instead of mashed potato topping, I wanted to try mashed cauliflower.

I've never made mashed cauliflower before - I was thinking I would just steam it until tender, and then blend it with a bit of milk and lite sour cream. Any other suggestions on how to make it?

Any suggestions on the filling? What spices to add (I was thinking rosemary or thyme..)? I hardly ever experimentally cook and usually follow a recipe
