Fauxtater Sheperds Pie

One of the staples of the low carb diet is faux mashed potatoes made from cauliflower, but I got tired of them pretty quickly and they never tasted that great by themselves.  I came up with this recipe as a way to enjoy them a bit more with a take on Sheperds pie.

1 lb ground turkey
1 small onion
1 pkg frozen spinach
1 pkg frozen broccolli
1 pkg frozen green beans
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 Tbsp Worchestire Sauce
Cauliflower Fauxtatoes (see recipe below)

Dice the onion and saute.  Add the turkey and brown.  Add the frozen vegetables and cook for a few minutes until defrosted.  Add the soup and worchestire sauce and mix.  Pour meat/veggie mixture in a 9x13 dish.  Spread the fauxtatoes on top.  Top with some shredded cheese and italian seasoning and place in the oven @350deg F for 20 to 25 minutes or until warmed all the way through.

Cauliflower Fauxtatoes
There are several recipes for these out there.  I modified them a bit to come up with this one.

1 head of cauliflower
1 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp sour cream
2 Tbsp cream cheese

Steam or boil the cauliflower until soft.  Drain well.  Add ingredients to food processor and mix until smooth.  Add salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning to taste.
