Gluten Free Shepherds Pie Recipe

by Becky | Posted in Dinner

A basic go-to meal any day of the week. This gluten free shepherds pie recipe is cheap and easy to make and it freezes well.

It is one of the first things I learned to cook and it’s still a favorite today.

You can add lots of different vegetables to it, use soya and lentils if you want to make it meat-free.

It is also a good recipe to hide vegetables in, as you can whisk the vegetables with the tomatoes and add them to the meat.

Are you ready to try my gluten free Shepherds pie recipe? Then let’s get started:

Ingredients – What do you need?

  • 500g grass feed minced beef (serves 4)
  • 5 large potatoes
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 3 carrots peeled and chopped into batons
  • 1 red pepper
  • 2 sticks celery
  • handful spinach
  • 1 x 400g tin tomatoes
  • Beef or Vegetable stock cube
  • 1 tablespoon herbs fresh or dried
  • 1 tablespoon tomato puree
  • 1 tablespoon gluten-free Worcester sauce (optional)
  • Salt and pepper
  • A knob of butter

Instructions – What do you do?

  • Preheat oven to 200c (Gas 6).
  • Peel and chop the potatoes into quarters and put them into a pot to boil. Boil for around 20-30 minutes until soft enough to mash.
  • Finely chop the onion and the garlic and fry in a little rapeseed oil for about 5 minutes.
  • Add the mince and fry until brown.
  • Remove, mince, onion, and garlic from the frying pan and place into an oven-proof dish.
  • Chop and baton the carrots, slice the celery, red pepper. Add them to the mince, you don’t need to fry them.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients, tin of tomatoes, stock cube, herbs, puree, Worcester sauce ( if using).
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • You can add  ( 300ml) or 1/2 pint of water if the mixture looks a little dry.
  • Mash your warm potatoes, I like to use a knob of butter and a splash of milk. This is optional.
  • Add the mash to the top of your mince and vegetables and firm down with a fork. You can add herbs and grated cheese if you wish or leave it plain.
  • Now pop into the oven and bake for 30-40 minutes or until the top is browned.  Serve with a little beef gravy. Heaven.

Gluten Free Shepherds Pie tips

Here are some tips to help you make the most out of this recipe:

Avoid Cross-Contamination

If you’re preparing the Shephard’s Pie in a kitchen that is not entirely gluten-free, take precautions to avoid cross-contamination.

Use separate utensils, cutting boards, and cooking surfaces to prevent gluten from coming into contact with the ingredients.

Batch cooking

This recipe is great to have as a backup in the freezer for when you are short on time. So make sure you make extra of your yummy shepherd’s pie.

Also, look out for the ingredients to be on offer in the supermarket and save a few pennies.
