Carbs per serving: 19g
½ lb ground beef
½ lb ground turkey
1 yellow onion
1 bag frozen veggies (I like the one with peas, corn, carrots, and green beans)
1 can tomato paste
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon Montreal steak seasoning
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Mashed cauliflower (recipe included)
Mashed cauliflower ingredients:
2 heads cauliflower
4 cloves garlic
2 tablespoon light sour cream
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Combine beef, turkey, onion, garlic powder, onion powder, and steak seasoning in a bowl and mix well. Then, add mixture to a pan over medium high heat and cook (stirring constantly) until meat is cooked though (about 10 mins).
2. Add frozen veggies, tomato paste, and Worcestershire sauce to pan, stir, and cook for 5 more mins.
3. Prepare the mashed cauliflower: While meat is cooking, add cauliflower to pot and cover with water. Boil over medium-high heat for 10-15 min. When cauliflower is done, drain and lay on tea towel. IMPORTANT STEP: either use a cheese cloth to drain the water from the cauliflower or press between 2 tea towels to remove all the water you can. Then add cauliflower, garlic, sour cream, Parmesan, and salt & pepper to food processor and blend (you can also use a hand masher if need be).
4. Preheat oven to 375. Spread meat mixture into baking dish and top with mashed cauliflower. Bake for 15 mins, remove from oven and enjoy!
