Shepherd’s Pie with Sweet Potato Topping
1 pound ground beef
2 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 tsp dried rosemary

1/4 tsp black pepper
3 oz tomato paste
1 egg white
2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed

2. Begin to brown ground beef in a large skillet on medium heat. Once beef is partially browned, add chopped carrots, onions, peppers and minced garlic. Cook on medium heat until carrots are soft (about 10 minutes). You may begin making the topping while the meat filling cooks. Once the carrots are soft, stir in tomato paste, egg white, seasonings salt and pepper.
3. For the topping: steam sweet potatoes until fork tender. Then add all of the topping ingredients to blender and process until smooth.
