#Recipe: Shepherd's Pie Soup

I am a huge fan of Shepherd's Pie having British heritage. It is a dish my grandfather and mother made often as I was growing up.
Now you may know by now, if you are a regular reader, what a soup nazi I am.
'No soup for you!'
Actually I love making soups, for everyone. My slow cooker and dutch oven are my best friends, and help me out a lot.
So with the love of Shepherd's Pie and the love of soup, how about a mash-up?!

Shepherd's Pie Soup

INGREDIENTS:
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp of fresh thyme
  • 450 g of extra lean ground beef, raw (the $5 pack)
  • 1 large carrot, diced
  • 1 rib of celery, diced
  • 3 white potatoes, large, cut in small chunks
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 900ml package of beef broth
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup of frozen peas
METHOD:
In Dutch oven or deep, large pot, heat oil over medium-high heat. SautĂ© onion, garlic and thyme until onion is soft. (About 2 minutes.) 
Add beef, carrot, celery, and potatoes and cook until meat is no longer pink. Make sure to break up beef in bite size chunks when cooking. This takes about 3-5 minutes.
Stir in tomato paste, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce and cook until it thickens slightly. About 2 minutes.
Add broth, pepper, salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until potatoes are tender. This takes about 6-8 minutes. Stir in peas and cook about 1-2 minutes more. 
Serve hot.

**Serving suggestion: Add warm Ciabatta loaves to the meal. 

Serves 2-4

  5. This sounds so good! Perfect for those cold days in winter or on a week you don't want to cook a lot. This would be great with ground turkey as well.

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.
