The healthy recipes just keep on coming!

Ok, I’m freaking myself out! I’ve produced another really healthy recipe in two days! No butter or cheese in this vegetarian shepherd’s pie. I swapped the traditional mash potato topping for a sweet potato one, which provides this dish with a sweetness to compliment the earthiness of the vegetables.

A real winter warmer and so very filling due to the protein content. So great for the husband’s diet and good for me too!

But I’m going to be baking again today! Just to balance things out a bit lol!
Have a super day friends, much love D x
