    I tried cauliflower last year and then mashing swede for the top of sheperds pie but personally I find that mixng swede and celeriac gives the best potato like flavour! celeriac is 2.2g carbs war and swede less than 5 so well low carb to make! This i made with more than a kilo of both combined and makes a good 8 portions as a side, even more!

    NUTRITIONAL VALUES (this recipe makes at least 8 side portions, so this is assuming 1/8th of the recipe)
    296kcal 23g Fat 14g Protein 2.5g Carbs (3g Fibre)

    meat? there isn't meat? technically not even that much starch or ingredients since it's cheese, celeriac and swede? are we talking about the same recipe?

    Most probably not, as I could not see any meat either in the video.

    It's easy to remember what meat goes in shepherds pie, mutton that is minced up.

    Cottage pie has beef mince in it.

    Australia exports a lot of live sheep around 70,000 head at a time by ship. These mainly go to peace loving Arab countries like Saudi and the Arab Emirates.

    @Contralto - in my part of the UK shepherds pie contains minced lamb. Without it the mixture in the recipe is just a celeriac/swede alternative to mashed potatoes - as is indicated by the wording at the start of the video :wideyed:

    This is a Shepherd's pie with a topping of mashed swede.

    I’m tired after watching the video

    Mixing the suede with the celeriac sounds good, so I’ll give it a go (not sure I want to boil my veg for an hour and risk losing all the vitamins though).

    I’m sat right now eating mashed celeriac for the first (and probably last) time. I had a fair bit left over and a swede in need of eating so tomorrow will give this a whirl. Got to be worth a try

    The school dinner cooks did not worry about stuff like that, just boil the guts out of it was their method.
