Spiced Parsnip & Lamb Shepherd’s Pie

60+ Mins

Recipe by Lily Harris


(Serves approximately 6-8, perfect for a party)

(Allergen Information: Gluten-free, dairy-free)


-Lamb Filling:

-2 tbsp olive oil (feel free to use butter or plant-based butter for richer flavor)

-1 yellow onion, chopped

-2 garlic cloves, minced

-3 carrots, chopped (no need to peel)

-1 small knob of fresh ginger, about 1” (or ¼ tsp ground ginger)

-2 tbsp curry powder

-1/4 tsp garam masala

-1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

-1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

-1lb ground lamb

-1 28oz can diced tomatoes, with their liquid

-1/2 cup frozen peas

-Optional: If you like more of a kick, add a bit of chopped fresh jalapeño in when you add your onion

-Spiced Parsnip Mash Topping:

-5 cups parsnips, peeled & roughly chopped into large pieces

-1 large potato, peeled & roughly chopped into large pieces

-2 tsp ground turmeric 

-Juice of one lemon

-1 ½ cups stock (chicken or vegetable)

-Optional: Adding a bit of butter, plant-based butter, or dash of coconut milk for added creaminess


-Preheat your oven to 375 F.

-Heat olive oil in a large sided pan over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, carrots, & ginger, cooking until softened for about 8-10 minutes.

-Add curry powder, garam masala, cinnamon, & red pepper flakes, stir to combine, & cook for about 2 minutes, until fragrant.

-Add the ground lamb to the pan, using a spatula to break into small bits, mix everything together, & cook until browning.

-While the lamb browns, add your parsnips & potato to a pot full of salted water, bring to a boil & cook at a rolling boil for 10 minutes with the lid off.

-It’s time to add in the can of diced tomatoes with their liquid to the lamb mixture, mixing together & simmering for 20 minutes.

-Toss in your frozen peas & cook all together for 2 more minutes.

-Transfer your cooked lamb mixture to your casserole dish & spread into one even layer. I use a 2.5 qt glass casserole dish.

-Once the 10 minutes is up on the parsnips & potatoes, drain them through a colander & add them to your food processor along with the remaining mash ingredients. Pulse until smooth. (If you don’t have a food processor, you can try your blender or just mash by hand in a mixing bowl. Try to get everything smooth & well combined)

-Add the mash to the casserole dish, evenly covering the lamb mixture below.

-Decoration time is here & this is your time to play & personalize this pie! You can use a fork to decorate the top of the mash, you can leave the top in fluffy swirls from your spatula, you can draw a big face or festive leaves on top or decorate it however you like!

-Bake in the oven, without a lid, until bubbling & golden for 25 minutes. 

-At this point it’s ready to be enjoyed, but if you’d like the top to be even more golden, pop it under the broiler for 5 minutes.

-Top with chopped cilantro & enjoy!
