  • 1 cup frozen peas (corn, and carrots)

  • 1 medium onion (chopped)

  • 1⁄2 cup beef broth

  • 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce

  • 1 extra lean ground beef

  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste

  • 1 tablespoon gluten-free flour

  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped thyme

  • 4 teaspoons neutral oil (divided)

  • 2 Yukon Gold potatoes (cut into 1-inch pieces)

  • 1⁄2 cup full-fat Greek yogurt (plain)

  • 2 tablespoons grass-fed butter

  • 1⁄4 cup parmesan cheese

  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Add oil to a large skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Add onions and cook until translucent and taking on color, stirring occasionally.
  • Add ground beef and break apart. Add thyme, salt, and pepper, stirring to combine. Cook until meat is browned, and no pink remains.
  • Add Worcestershire sauce, stir to combine. Add flour and tomato paste. Stir until no clumps remain and flour starts to brown.
  • Add broth, frozen peas, and carrots. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until a gravy starts to form. Set mixture aside.
  • Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with water. Bring water to a boil and cook potatoes until fork tender. Drain and return to pot.
  • Add butter and yogurt to the pot and mash until all the ingredients are combined and your desired consistency is achieved. Add Parmesan cheese and stir to combine.
  • Divide meat mixture into 4 separate aluminum baking vessels. Spoon mashed potatoes over each one, dividing evenly.
  • Place on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the potatoes are golden brown on top.
  • Cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.
