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 Turkey Pot Pie
(Serves 2 people)
- 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
- 500g chopped swede
- 1 tablespoon Garlic & herb Philadelphia
- Half a bunch of fresh thyme
- 30g low-fat grated cheese
- Salt & Pepper
- 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.
- 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.
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.
