I’ve been making this one for years – started with the vegetarian version and over the years as I began eating a bit of meat added the omnivore version. My side always has yams on it while hubby’s side always is jam-packed full of mashed potato – I know, next time I need to snap a pic of the whole dish, half orange half white, as it comes out of the oven!!
- 1-2 Tbsp virgin coconut oil
- 1 onion, diced
- 3 celery stalks, diced
- 3-4 carrots, diced
- 1 handful of fresh parsley, chopped finely
- 1 bunch kale, stems removed and torn into small pieces
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp turmeric
- dash fresh ground black pepper
- 1 can diced tomatoes
- 1 cup frozen endamame
- 1lb ground bison (or venison or elk or grassfed beef)
- 1 cup bone broth (or low sodium veggie broth)
- ½-1 cup frozen corn
- 2-3 heaping Tbsp tomato paste
For the topping:
- 2 medium or 3 small yams OR 3-4 potatoes, peeled or washed and diced
- 2-3 Tbsp grassfed butter or olive oil
- 2-4 Tbsp plain unsweetened almond or coconut milk
- Heat oven to 375°F.
- Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the diced potatoes or yams, and simmer for 20 minutes until soft when pierced with fork. Drain and return potatoes or yams to pot. Add butter or oil and milk, and mash until creamy and fluffy. Set aside.
- Heat 1-2 Tbsp coconut oil in a large skillet.
- Sauté onion, celery and carrots until onions are transparent, about 5 minutes.
- If making meat version, add the bison and continue to sauté until the meat is no longer pink.
- Add the parsley, kale, sea salt, turmeric and pepper.
- If making the vegetarian version, add the tomatoes, tomato paste, endamame and corn and simmer for about 5 minutes longer.
- IF making the meat version, add the bone broth, tomato paste and corn and simmer about 5 minutes longer.
- Pour this mixture into a 9×9 baking dish.
- Top with the mashed potatoes or yams (alternatively you could just slice boiled yams or potatoes overtop the filling).
- Bake for 30 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes and serve.
To deliciously healthy food and stronger faster running… Cheers,
