Ingredients

  • 1 carrot
  • 3 celery sticks
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 500 g ground beef or pork
  • 1 tsp Himalayan salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste about 18g
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Mashed Cauliflower

  • 1 medium cauliflower about 500g
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella
  • 1 tbsp salted butter
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • pinch parsley
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 210C/410F.
  • Peel and dice the carrot. Dice the celery sticks and onion, and mince the garlic.
  • In a large frying pan, heat the oil and add the vegetables to the pan. Cook on medium heat for 2-3 minutes, until soft, and add the ground beef. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until browned, and add the salt, pepper, garlic powder and tomato paste. Cook for another minute until the seasoning has all been incorporated. Turn off heat and transfer the meat to a baking dish. I used two 6.5x3.5'' baking dishes.

  • Clean and cut the cauliflower and put them to boil in a large pot until soft, about 6-7 minutes. Drain the water, and add the cream, 1/2 cup of cheese, butter, salt, pepper and garlic powder to the pot. I used a stick blender to mash the cauliflower, but you could transfer the ingredients to a blender or food processor, or mash really hard with a potato masher.

  • Sprinkle the other 1/2 cup of cheese over the cauliflower. Sprinkle some parsley over the cheese. Place the baking dish into the oven on the highest rack and bake for 10 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and has a nice golden colour. Take out of the oven and enjoy!
