  • Preheat oven to 400° and lightly spray a 9×13 casserole dish with olive oil.
  • Add the potatoes to large pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook until fork tender, about 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, heat a large pan over medium heat, and spray with olive oil. Add the onions and cook until soft, about 10 minutes.
  • Add ground beef to the pan with the onions and cook until no longer pink (about 5 minutes). Add in vegetables, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and mix together.
  • Mix in the Worcestershire sauce and beef broth. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to low. Cook uncovered for 10 minutes.
  • When the potatoes are done cooking, reserve a cup of potato water (use a coffee cup to dip in and remove water) and set aside.
  • Drain the potatoes and add back to the pot. Add in 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, almond milk, Greek Yogurt and 1/8 cup of the potato water. Mash with a potato masher, adding more potato water as needed to thin the potatoes.
  • In an even layer, spread the beef and vegetables mixture in the prepared casserole dish.
  • Spread the mashed potatoes over the top of the ground beef. And sprinkle the top with cheese.
  • Move to the oven and bake for 30 minutes, until browned and bubbling. If necessary, broil for the last 2 minutes to help brown the potatoes.
