Ground turkey Shepherd’s pie


For the mashed sweet potatoes

  • Place a pot over medium heat and fill it with water.
  • Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into pieces.
  • Put the sweet potato pieces in the pot along with some salt.
  • Let them boil until they get tender, for 20-30 minutes.
  • When a knife goes through the sweet potato’s pieces easily, then they are ready.  

For the filling

  • While the sweet potatoes are boiling, prepare the filling and preheat the oven to 180οC (356ο F) set to fan.
  • Place a deep pan over medium heat and add some olive oil in it.
  • Sauté the onion until it softens, for about 2 minutes.
  • Add the ground turkey and press with a wooden spoon in order to break up any clumps.
  • Season with salt and pepper and add the peas, corn, and mushrooms. Sauté for 5-7 minutes.
  • Add the Worcestershire sauce and the tomato paste.
  • Sauté for 2-3 minutes while mixing with the wooden spoon and then, add the water and the chicken cube. Let the mixture simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Then, remove from the heat and put the ground turkey along with the liquids in a 30cm ovenproof oval roasting pan. Set aside until the mashed sweet potatoes are prepared.
  • Drain the sweet potato pieces and leave them in a strainer so that the water is totally drained. With a potato masher or a fork, mash the sweet potatoes well.
  • Add the olive oil, salt and then mix.
  • Transfer the mashed sweet potatoes in a pastry bag and decorate the roasting pan by creating toppings over the ground turkey.
  • Sprinkle with paprika and bake for 30 minutes until the mashed potatoes turn lightly golden.
  • Remove from the oven and serve.
