Cottage Pie
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. In a pan add potatoes, cover with water and bring to a boil. Cook the potatoes for about 20 minutes or until they can easily be pierced with a fork. Drain till they are very dry and place back into pan. Add warmed milk, butter and salt and pepper and whip to your desired consistency. Set aside.
  3. While potatoes are cooking, in a medium-sized saute pan, melt a teaspoon or more of ghee and cook the shallots till slightly translucent. Add the ground beef and brown. Toss in garlic and seasonings and continue to cook till you begin to smell the herbs. Set aside.
  4. Grease a casserole dish with ghee or butter and layer the bottom with the ground beef. Sprinkle a little extra BBQ mesquite here if you like along with some good salt and pepper.
  5. Layer the mixed frozen veggies on top of the beef. Next layer the mashed potatoes.
  6. Add dollops of Black Garlic Ghee on top of the potatoes and bake at 375F for 20-30 minutes.
  7. If you are adding cheese, place on top of mashed potatoes for an additional 5 minutes.
  8. You can use any of our savory ghee products in place of Black Garlic Ghee.
Recipe Notes

Cottage Pie is just like Shepherds Pie only made with ground beef instead of ground lamb.

Serves 8 generously.

Fresh Asparagus Soup
Instructions
  1. Over medium heat, add to a saucepan, melt the ghee. Toss in the shallots and potato and stir till well coated. Allow to cook approximately 3 minutes, then add the asparagus and garlic and continue to stir frequently to cook for another 5 minutes or so. Then add the broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and add the dill, parsley, salt and pepper and simmer for approximately 25-30 minutes. Test the asparagus to make sure it’s very soft. If still somewhat firm continue to simmer. Once soft, remove the pan from the heat and place on a protected surface. Using an immersion blender, blend slowly and carefully until the soup is very smooth.
  2. Place back on the burner on very low heat, stir in lemon juice and season to taste with salt and freshly ground pepper.
  3. Serve with a dollop of Turmeric + Black Pepper Ghee, or coconut cream or sour cream.
Recipe Notes

* Heat an extra cup of broth in case the soup is too thick when blending. Slowly add it in small increments till you reach your desired consistency.
