This recipe is inspired by the traditional English cottage pie. It's got ground turkey in a flavorful gravy topped with a cauliflower mash that is just as rich and creamy as mashed potato. Cauliflower is also lower in carbs and offer more nutrients, so it's a win-win!

Make Cauliflower Mash
- Cut cauliflower into florets and steam until soft, about 10 minutes.
- Let steamed cauliflower cool down a bit, then transfer to food processor or high speed blender and puree until smooth. If using blender, use a tamper to assist with the pureeing process.
- Stir in melted butter and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Taste and add more salt and pepper according to your preference.
Assemble and Bake
- Spread cauliflower mash evenly over the turkey mince mixture in baking dish. Drizzle more melted butter on top if desired.
- Bake at 200 C / 392F for 20 minutes or until golden.
- Remove from oven and serve. Enjoy!
- You can add parmesan cheese if you like. Just sprinkle on top of cauliflower mash before baking.
- Don't overbake this or the cauliflower mash might crack. But if it does, don't worry. It might not look as pretty but it will still be delicious!
- Instead of turkey, this recipe will also be great with beef or lamb mince.
- You can keep leftovers in the fridge for 3-5 days or in the freezer for 2 months.
