Shepherd’s pie is a classic British dish which pretty much everyone I’ve ever met has their own way of making.

You might like to top yours with carrot and swede, but personally I love to top ours with our Syn Free Creamy Mashed Potatoes!

They’re just so creamy, and perfect to top this Syn Free Shepherd’s Pie.

Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight.

Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free!

We used the Sunflower one for this Syn Free Shepherd’s Pie recipe, and it was fab!

Shepherd’s Pie traditionally contains minced lamb, though trying to get hold of lamb mince which is guaranteed at less than 5% fat this is notoriously difficult (AKA impossible) to get hold of, so we’ve used lean diced lamb instead.

You need to make sure you use lean diced lamb in order to keep this recipe Syn Free.

We’ve chopped it very finely to create more of a minced lamb texture but if you prefer it chunkier then leave it!

You could chop the meat in a food processor but be careful; it is easy to end up with a puree which wouldn’t be too pleasant!

If you prefer minced beef, you could try our Syn Free Cottage Pie instead!
