Other ingredients for the top of the pie
1 medium cauliflower
2 tablespoons of butter
2 tablespoons of fresh cream
A little salt and pepper to taste
1 cup of grated tasty cheese
Method for Low Carb Cottage Pie
Brown the mince in a pan along with the onion
Add the flavorings
Add the frozen vegetables
Cover and cook until the vegetables are tender.
Wash and cut the cauliflower into pieces. The cauliflower can be boiled in a small amount of water or it can be steamed.
Do not overcook the cauliflower. Use a sharp knife to test if it is cooked. If it does overcook, don’t worry, the topping will be not so firm but will still taste great.
When the cauliflower is just tender, drain off as much water as possible. Us a masher to break up the cauliflower and then use a stick blender to make a smooth topping. Add the butter and cream, salt and pepper. I also like to add a teaspoon of curry powder. Blend everything together, it should be thick and smooth.
