Sweet Potato & Turkey Shepherds Pie
- 1 lb Extra Lean Ground Turkey
- 1 small Onion diced
- 2 cloves Garlic Minced
- 2 tbsp Tomato Paste
- 1 1/4 cup Chicken Broth
- 2 tsp Cumin
- 1 tsp Smoked Paprika
- 1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
- 2 tsp Oregano dried
- 1 1/2 cups Corn frozen kernels
- salt & pepper to taste
- 4 cups Sweet Potatoes cubed
- 2 tbsp Butter salted
- 1/3 cup Cilantro optional, for garnish
- Peel sweet potatoes, and place in a large pot with enough water so they are covered. Boil until fork tender. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Meanwhile in a dutch oven over medium-high heat sauté ground turkey until browned. Add chopped onions and minced garlic. Continue cooking until onions are translucent.
- Stir in the tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, cumin, paprika and oregano. Add 1 cup of chicken broth and bring everything to a boil. Reduce to low, and simmer. Add frozen corn kernels – simmer another 10 minutes.
- While the turkey mixture is simmering, drain potatoes and put back on the stove over low heat. Mash over low heat for a few minutes to help let the steam out of the potatoes.
- Remove from heat, add remaining 1/4 cup broth, butter, and salt & pepper to taste. Mash/mix together. Add the turkey mixture to an oven safe casserole dish. Top and spread out mashed sweet potatoes.
- Bake for 45 minutes or until sides gets crispy. Serve hot with a sprinkle of cilantro!
