No-Carb Turkey Pot Pie Recipe

As you can tell if you read my blog, the diet i tend to follow is mainly low-carb. I feel so bloated and uncomfortable when I eat to many carbs, so I am always on the hunt for alternative recipes. I substituted the mash for swede, and in all honesty couldn’t tell the difference, once I added some other ingredients to pimp it up a little.

Let’s get cracking hey?

No-Carb Pot Pie Recipe

No-Carb Turkey Pot Pie

(Serves 2 people)

Ingredients:

  • 250g lean turkey mince
  • 1 chicken stock
  • 200g mushrooms
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of dried thyme
  • Tomato Puree (1 tablespoon)
  • Half a jar of passata

Swede Mash:

  • 500g chopped swede
  • 1 tablespoon Garlic & herb Philadelphia
  • Half a bunch of fresh thyme
  • 30g low-fat grated cheese
  • Salt & Pepper

Method:

  • To a frying pan add the 2 tablespoons of soy sauce and add chopped red onion and mushrooms.
  • Saute for 5 minutes on a medium heat, and then add the turkey mince.
  • Fry till all the mince until it turns a white colour.
  • Add 2 crushed garlic cloves, passata, tomato puree, thyme and salt and pepper.
  • I then transfer this to a slow cooker and cook on a low-heat for around 4 hours. Alternatively you could leave it cooking on a low-heat on the hob.

Swede mash:

  • Add the swede to a pan, and cover with boiling water.
  • Boil until swede is soft. (Usually around 20 minutes on a high heat).
  • Drain water, and add back to the pan.
  • Mash, and add the Philadelphia, thyme and salt and pepper.
  • To a large dish or individual dish, add the turkey mixture.
  • Top with the swede mash and a sprinkling of cheese.
  • Grill on a medium heat for 5 minutes.

Turkey Pot Pie

I served with some broccoli, and it was truly delicious. The key is letting the turkey cook on a low heat for at least 4 hours, as the intensity and flavours develop perfectly over this time.
