Paleo Pork Pie





Think Shepherds Pie, but without potato or lamb... I used pork mince and mashed parsnip instead. It was delicious

Serves 2-3

Ingredients

Base
1 tbsp Avocado Oil
1 onion
250g Pork Mince
3 gloves Garlic
about 2 cups mixed vegetables of your choice (this time I used carrots, cauliflower and the middle of some courgette left over from courgette pasta, plus 1/2 a green capsicum pepper)
1/2 tin tomatoes
200ml vegetable stock
Sage and Thyme to taste (or other seasoning of your choice)
Salt and Pepper to taste

Top
4-5 parsnips
1 tbsp Ghee

Method

  • Heat the oil in a large frying pan (preferably one with a lid) and then add the onion, pork mince and garlic and cook until onion is clear and pork has gone brown
  • Add the rest of the base ingredients and simmer the whole lot for about 40 mins
  • In the meantime boil the parsnips,  and when cooked mash them with Ghee
  • Put the pork mix into the bottom of an oven proof dish and put the mashed parsnip on top
  • Bake the pie in an oven proof dish for 10-15 mins at 200ÂșC until the top browns a little
