Bison Shepherd’s Pie
March 17, 2017
An Irish menu staple, shepherd's pie is a savory dish that combines beefy stew, veggies, and mashed potatoes into an easy one-pan meal. Our version of this comfort food classic was inspired by The Real Food Dietitians and features ground bison, which is rich in protein, vitamin B-12, and omega-3 fatty acids. This scrumptious savory pie is topped with sweet potatoes and packed with Whole30-Approved ingredients.
Check out the full recipe below with ground bison, sautéed veggies in Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil and herbs that come together to bring a taste of Ireland to your kitchen. Don't have bison on hand? You can also substitute lean ground beef or ground turkey in a pinch. Serve with a Collagen Shamrock Shake for a festive St. Patrick's Day feast.
