This classic Shepherd's Pie dish is reimagined with Ground Beef and warm, exotic spices such as garam masala, turmeric, and ginger, topped with mashed cauliflower.
Place cauliflower in large saucepan. Cover with water; bring to boil. Cook 10 minutes or until very tender. Reserve 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid. Drain cauliflower and return to pot. Mash cauliflower with potato masher until slightly chunky. Stir in reserved 1/4 cup cooking liquid, 1 tablespoon at a time to moisten. Season with 3/4 teaspoon of salt and turmeric.
Meanwhile, heat large ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add ginger and garam masala; cooking until spices are fragrant, about one minute. Add ground beef and tomatoes, cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into 1/2-inch crumbles and stirring occasionally. Season with remaining 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Remove from heat and stir in peas.
Preheat broiler to high. Spread beef mixture in even layer in skillet. Spread cauliflower mixture evenly over beef mixture. Place skillet on oven rack so surface of cauliflower is 3 to 4 inches from heat. Broil 12-15 minutes or until the cauliflower is golden brown. Cool slightly. Serve with lemon wedges.
