Paleo Sweet Potato Cottage Pie (Whole30)
This Paleo Sweet Potato Cottage Pie is the best comfort food for cold days. Whole30 and Dairy Free, this flavorful dish is a healthier spin on a classic recipe.
If you saw yesterday's post, you knew I had a healthy, Whole30 approved recipe coming today. If you missed my post, check it out here.
Whole30 doesn't allow sweets which means I'm cranky and irritable. Just kidding! Fortunately, I (knock on wood) haven't had any massive cravings! What it does mean is that I can't have any dessert, including delicious pie. Since I can't have pie for dessert on the Whole30, I'm eating pie for dinner!
I really, really enjoy the taste and concept of Cottage Pie. Combining two of my favorite things, potatoes and beef, is a magnificent idea. Although white potatoes have the "OK" on Whole30, I generally try and stick with sweet potatoes which I find works better for me. This recipe is my take on a paleo friendly cottage pie that will still give you all the feels, flavor and comfort of a traditional one.
