Shepherd’s Pie

The ultimate BEST EVER Shepherd's Pie! A delicious and simple dinner! via chelseasmessyapron.com #shepherd #pie #dinner #casserole #easy #quick #holiday #leftover #leftovers #beef #gravy #vegetables #healthy #potatoes #mashed #kidfriendly

Shepherd’s Pie ,
.

A rich gravy with ground beef and vegetables topped with ultra creamy mashed potatoes. The ultimate comfort food: Shepherd’s Pie!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 50 minutes
Total time: 60 minutes
Servings: 6-8 Servings

INGREDIENTS:


2 tablespoons olive oil, separated
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups mirepoix (mix of carrots, onion, & celery), finely chopped (I chop 1 small yellow onion, 1 celery rib, & 1 carrot to get 2 cups)
1.2 pounds ground chuck round
1/4 cup white flour
1/2 cup frozen sweet peas or corn
1 can (14.5 ounces) fire-roasted diced tomatoes, undrained
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 and 3/4 cups beef stock (low sodium) (can use low sodium beef broth)
1/2 cup 100% grape juice
1 beef bouillon cube
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon dried thyme
3 bay leaves, separated
Topping
2 and 1/2 pounds potatoes (I use an equal mix of Yukon Gold and Russet; if just using one use Yukon Gold)
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup sour cream (can use fat free)
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
Fine sea salt and freshly cracked pepper
Optional: fresh parsley or fresh thyme, for topping

INSTRUCTIONS:


• Pour 1 and 1/2 tablespoons olive oil in a large (oven-safe to save a dish!) skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic cloves and finely chopped onion and cook, stirring frequently for about 1 minute. Add the finely chopped carrots and celery and cook for another 2-3 minutes or until veggies are softened.

• Increase heat to high and add in the beef. Cook, breaking up the beef, until browned through. If there is excessive grease, drain off that additional fat. Add in the flour and cook an additional minute to cook off the flour taste. Reduce heat to medium-high and add in the frozen peas or corn, can of diced tomatoes, tomato paste, beef stock, grape juice, beef bouillon cube, Worcestershire sauce, dried thyme, and 2 bay leaves.

• Bring this mixture to a simmer then reduce heat to medium and bring the mixture to a rapid simmer. Cook for 25-35 minutes at medium heat, stirring every 5 or so minutes, until you have a good thickened gravy. Remove from heat, cover, and refrigerate until ready to bake. (I like making in the morning and assembling before dinner). If making immediately, place in the fridge until potatoes are done (you want the mixture to chill for as long as possible so the layers stay separate when baking, 15-20 minutes at a minimum) 🙂 If you didn’t prepare in an oven-safe skillet, transfer to a 2 quart oven-safe dish.

healthy snickers bars (vegan + 6 ingredients!) ,
.

Vegan and Gluten Free, these Healthy Snickers Bars will satisfy any sweet tooth! Made with only 6 plant based ingredients, they’re easy to make and good for you too.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 70 minutes
Total time: 80 minutes
Servings: 8 Servings

INGREDIENTS:


1 packed cup Medjool Dates
2 tbsp Peanut Butter
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tsp Maca Powder (Optional)
¼ tsp Salt
Nougat Layer:
⅔ cup Oat Flour
¼ cup Date Caramel, above
Other:
⅓ cup Dry Roasted Peanuts (I used Salted)
4 oz Vegan Chocolate (see notes for options)

INSTRUCTIONS:


• Remove the pits from the Medjool Dates and pack them (really pack them!) into 1 cup. Transfer the Dates to a larger bowl and cover with hot water. Soak the Dates for 10 minutes (or just cover the Dates in water and microwave for 60-80 seconds if you want to be efficient).

• If you do not have Oat Flour, make some by blending a scant ⅔ cup of Quick or Rolled Oats in a Blender for 45-60 seconds until smooth and fluffy.

• Drain any excess liquid off of the Medjool Dates (they should be relatively moist, but not dripping) and add them to a food processor or high speed blender with the remaining ingredients for the Caramel. Process until thick and smooth, scraping the sides of the device if necessary.

SIMPLE SKILLET ZUCCHINI AND YELLOW SQUASH ,
.

This skillet zucchini and yellow squash recipe is so easy, delicious, and healthy, it is bound to become a summer side dish staple. Considering this is the side dish we eat four out of five

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes
Servings: 6 Servings

INGREDIENTS:


1/2 tablespoon butter
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
2 small zucchini, ends trimmed and diced
2 small to medium yellow crookneck squash, ends trimmed and diced
Salt and pepper to taste
Sprinkle of freshly grated Parmesan cheese (optional but yummy)

INSTRUCTIONS:


• In a 10- or 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat the butter and olive oil over medium heat until hot and rippling.

• Add the zucchini and yellow squash in as even a layer as possible (it should sizzle as it hits the skillet) and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Let it sit without stirring or moving for 2-3 minutes so it can get nice and golden. Give it a good stir, add a touch more salt and pepper to taste if needed, and let it continue to cook, stirring only every now and then, until the squash is browning here and there and tender to your liking, about 5-7 more minutes.

It is clean eating, dairy free, vegan, paleo and requires no added sugar. Kids love this homemade strawberry ice cream and it is a great recipe to get them involved in the process. #icecream #summer #dessert #healthy #vegan #recipe Video | Food Processor | Just Fruit | Soft Serve | Blenders | Simple | Snacks | Summer Desserts

Strawberry Banana Ice Cream ,
.

These Mini Chocolate Cheesecakes are a creamy and decadent dessert with an Oreo crust.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes
Total time: 15 minutes
Servings: 1 Servings

INGREDIENTS:


1 frozen banana sliced
1 cup frozen strawberries

INSTRUCTIONS:


• If not using store-bought frozen fruit, peel the banana and slice it. Freeze the banana slices and strawberries for at least 4 hours – better yet overnight. (Reusable silicone bags are a great alternative to plastic freezer bags.)

• Place the frozen strawberries and banana slices into a food processor or a high speed blender (see notes above).

• Process the fruit until smooth. It will be very loud at first and the fruit will look like crumbles. But eventually it breaks down to a smooth consistency. You may need to stop the machine and scrape down the side once or twice.
