Kids love Shepherd’s pie, but due to the fat intolerance issue they have, the authentic one with full beef, milk, and butter is a little too much for them.
* Quick Recipe skips cooking basics and ingredients list, sharing the ideas for your inspiration.*
So I thought of adjusting the ratio of ingredients, this deconstructed shepherd’s pie was created.
I use just a little of ground beef for flavoring and fill with grains and vegetables. Let’s say, beef would be about 10%, rest are Barley, Rice, Millet, Garlic, Carrots, and Onions,
Because of the limited amount of beef, I want to addsome extra flavor.
Indian inspired ground beef was the perfect idea to mix with veggies and Grains. I use Cumin, Turmeric, Garam Masala, Ginger, Smoked Paprika, and Black Pepper.
And it’s “topped with” mashed potato, instead of covering it all over with. It actually is much enjoyable than meaty ones, barley observes meat flavor and the chewy texture is very satisfying.
