Shepherd's Pie...sort of

Sort of...Shepherd's pie ...

Recently, my husband has turned over a new leaf and is trying to eat significantly less simple carbs and a few more veggies...somewhat "paleo" insipired.  
I call it "Scott friendly paleo."  Regardless, it makes dinner way easier in that he is now eating much closer to how I eat...minus a few pieces of produce, here and there.  The following link shows the basis of the recipe that I cooked this evening.  He AND MY 14 YEAR OLD SON, ate it, had 2nds AND 3rds!

Here is how I made it:
1.  Using a food processor, I chopped up 1.5 yellow onions and about 6 stalks of celery (pretty small)
2.  Start to saute the onions and celery in about 1.5 T olive oil (in a giant range top wok)...
3.  Meanwhile, one whole head of washed cauliflower steamed to "well done" in microwave, drain
4.  Add about 1.5-2 cups sliced mushrooms to vegetables in wok, stir
5.  Stir in around 2T of chopped fresh rosemary to wok veggies
5.  Use an immersion blender (or your tool of choice) and puree the cauliflower with 2T of butter, garlic and salt to "mashed potato" consistency
6.  Add ground meat of your choice to the veggies, (I used lean ground beef)...and cook fully
7.  Heat oven to 375 and use oil spray to coat inside of casserole dish (9.5x11)
8.  Pour meat/veggie mixture into dish, spread "cauliflower mash" over the top
9.  Bake for around 20 minutes--
