Had some grass-fed ground beef in fridge that needed to be used up. I was going to make paleo tacos but we had Mexican when we were out last night with some friends so I opted for a different direction. Hubby suggested something like shepherd’s pie so that’s what I went with. YUM! Just as good as the original even without the peas, corn or white potatoes.

🔹optional-1/4c Nutritional yeast if you want a slightly “cheesy” flavor to the mash

🔹3 celery stalks, chopped
🔹1 large zucchini, chopped
🔹1T garlic, chopped
2⃣When starting to turn translucent, add in 1.5lbs of ground beef and brown
