Shepherd’s Pie

This is a delightfully warm & cozy meal, perfect for this time of year 🙂 It’s a great way to use left-over mashed potatoes too!


  • 1 lb. ground turkey, browned
  • Olive oil, for sautéing
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 cup carrots, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon thyme
  • ½ teaspoon rosemary
  • 2 potatoes, diced
  • 3 cups broth (chicken or vegetable)
  • 3 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 cup frozen peas & corn
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon sage
  • mashed potatoes, prepared

Heat oven to 350.

Sauté onions & carrots about 6 minutes. Add thyme, rosemary, broth, & soy sauce. Simmer about 15 minutes. Stir in peas, corn, salt, & pepper. Bring to a simmer. Mix the cornstarch in a small bowl with water. Add cornstarch mixture to the vegetables, & stir until well distributed. Stir in sage.

Place in pie plate or casserole dish & top with mashed potatoes. Bake 25 minutes.

An alternative serving option (as pictured above) is to prepare in skillet, but instead of baking in the oven, spoon mixture into bowls & top individual bowls with your prepared mashed potatoes.

Have a lovely week!

    Its so refreshing to see a young mom who does so much for her child. I love the way you tackle on topics like natural living, breast-feeding, and childbirth. Your thoughts and stories are so well written.

    My favorite part of the website is all of the yummy recipes! You show that healthy eating can be made on a budget, fast, and tasty!

    The topic of goals before you are thirty really made me think of things in my life that I want to accomplish.

    Keep up the good work. I can’t wait to read more!!!
