Supper: Shepherds pie, with beetroot veg mix

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

I have just come back from a mini break staying in a shepherds hut/shed, with a log burning stove/oven, tv and a bed, it was so small you couldn’t fit anything else in, apart from maybe a flamenco. I was surrounded by horses, chickens, larmers, pigs, birds, cats the lot and it was rather divine and helped me relax and feel better.

The only problem was that the toilet was a long stones throw away, which is too much effort to walk to when on holiday, so I became a shameful savage and had to jump in a bush and hope I didn’t get caught by the farmer, luckily I didn’t. Now I’m back I wouldn’t dream of doing such a disgraceful thing, but at the time it felt perfectly normal.

So steering back to food, I have been inspired by my break to create a shepherds pie, and it came out pretty tasty. I had it for lunch and then saved the rest for supper, I froze it after lunch, so that the histamine didn’t rise, as the histamine can become high very quickly with all cooked food, especially meat.

Ingredients – mash

  • 1 butternut squash peeled and diced
  • 1 sweet potato peeled and diced
  • 1 apple chopped
  • chunk of fresh chopped ginger
  • 2 cloves of garlic peeled and roughly chopped
  • thyme
  • coconut oil (odourless)
  • salt

Method

Put the oven on gas mark 5, then put the butternut squash, sweet potato, apple, garlic, ginger, salt in a flat dish with the coconut oil, and put in the oven for 10 minutes or until the oil has melted, then mix the veg all in it and let it cook until soft, should be about 40 minutes all together, once soft, then mash it all together.

Ingredients – filling

  • Half a container of organic lamb mince
  • 1 celery finely chopped
  • 1 carrot finely chopped
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • half a courgette (zucchini) finely chopped
  • 4 cloves of garlic put through a squeezer
  • fresh chopped thyme
  • rock salt
  • coconut oil (odourless)

method

Heat up the coconut oil, then add in the mince and let it cook until browned, then add in the garlic, thyme, onions and salt and let it cook for a few more minutes until the flavours start to come through, then add in the carrots, celery, courgette (zucchini), and l then let the mixture simmer for around 15 minutes, then add in a little water and then it slowly cook for another 20 minutes, add more water if needed. Then place the mixture in a dish, then top it with the mash, sprinkle some thyme over the top and place in the oven for around 20 minutes and it’s ready to munch.

Ingredients – veg

  • 2 beetroots chopped
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • handful of kale
  • coconut oil (odourless)
  • salt

Method

Heat up the coconut oil, then add in the onions and beetroot and fry in the oil for around 20 minutes, or until soft, then add in the kale and cook for another 5 minutes, so it’s still crunchy, but cooked and it’s ready to serve with the shepherds pie.

  1. I’ve peed in bushes a few times myself when hiking in the woods. My daughter was doing that and thought no one could see her, but a huge, tall bus load of Japanese tourists drove slowly by waving at her and taking pictures. Lol

    1. It has to be done sometimes, i think everyone secretly does it at least once in their life, my granny used to do it on the road side if she was desperate. Haha thats absolutely hilarious, sounds like a comedy sketch, your poor daughter! lol
