Turkey and Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie

When my family wants a warm, comforting meal in the fall or winter, I make this sweet potato shepherd's pie. Perfect for cold nights, or rainy days, this savory dish pleases everyone (well, except for my son who only eat peanut butter) and makes the house smell delicious!
Try to get fresh rosemary if you can. It gives this meal such a fresh, savory taste!

INGREDIENTS

For the potatoes:
1-1/2 lbs sweet potatoes, peeled, diced
3 cloves garlic
1/2 cup 1% milk
1/4 cup fat free chicken broth*
2 tbsp reduced fat sour cream
salt and pepper to taste 

For the filling:
1 lb 93% lean ground turkey
1 tsp olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
1 celery stalk, chopped
1 parsnip, diced
2 cloves garlic, diced
8 oz mushrooms, diced
10 oz frozen mixed vegetables
2 tbsp flour (leave out to make gluten-free)
1 cup fat-free low-sodium chicken broth*
2 tsp tomato paste
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp freshly chopped rosemary
salt and pepper
paprika

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Boil sweet potatoes and garlic in a pot of salted water until cooked and soft. Drain and mash with chicken broth, sour cream, salt and pepper. 

2. Preheat oven to 400°F.

3. In a large saute pan brown turkey; season with salt and pepper. When cooked, set aside on a plate. Add olive oil to the pan, then add the onion and sauté one minute. 

4. Add the celery, parsnip, salt and pepper to taste; cook about 12 minutes, until celery is soft. Add garlic and mushrooms; sauté another 3-4 minutes. 

5. Add flour, salt and pepper and mix well. 

6. Add frozen vegetables, chicken broth, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, rosemary, cooked turkey, and mix well. Simmer on low about 5-10 minutes.

7. In 6 oven safe individual dishes spread 1 cup of the meat mixture on the bottom of each dish. Top each with 1/2 cup mashed sweet potatoes. Use a fork to scrape the top of the potatoes to make ridges, or peaks; sprinkle with paprika. Bake 20 minutes or until potatoes turn golden. Remove from oven and let it cool 10 minutes before serving.
