This sweet potato riff on the classic winter comfort food is a great way to get your shepherd’s pie fix. Sweet potatoes burst with vitamins A and C, and are a good source of potassium and fiber.



1. Set a pot of water to boil on the stove.
2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
3. Cut sweet potato lengthwise, then quarter. When the water boils, add salt and add the sweet potatoes. Cook sweet potatoes 10-12 minutes, drain and air dry. Mash with a fork, spoon or masher and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
4. Warm a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and wait for it to ripple, then add onions and cook 2-3 minutes until they soften. Add garlic, peppers, salt and pepper and cook another 3 minutes.
5. Add ground lamb, making sure to separate as much as possible. Cook 5 minutes, stir to combine the ground lamb with the onions and peppers and remove from heat.
6. Fill a 9-inch baking dish with high sides with ground lamb mixture. Use a spatula to top and smooth out the mashed sweet potato on top. Cook for 45 minutes and let cool 5 minutes.
7. Serve garnished with julienned parsley.
