  • 3 cups sweet potato mashed (from roasted sweet potatoes)
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk can use full fat for creamier potatoes
  • salt & pepper as desired

Turkey Filling

  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 cups Broccoli or other leftover veggies
  • 1 cup mushrooms sliced
  • 2 cups chicken or turkey stock
  • 1 tbs fresh thyme
  • 1 tbs fresh rosemary
  • 1 tbs fresh sage
  • 1 tsp Dijon Mustard whole30 compliant
  • salt & pepper as desired
  • 2 tbsp arrowroot flour
  • 2 cups leftover turkey chopped


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Scoop roasted sweet potato flesh, and then mix with coconut milk.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste, and set aside.
  • In a skillet, add olive oil, onion, and garlic. Saute for 5-7 minutes until softened.
  • Add broccoli and mushrooms, and saute another 3-4 minutes, while seasoning with fresh or dried herbs and salt and pepper.
  • Add chicken stock and dijon mustard. Add arrowroot, and whisk to combine. Arrowroot doesn’t clump like wheat flour and corn starch, so it’s okay to add directly to your liquid as long as you’re whisking it in. If using corn starch or wheat flour as a sub, combine it with a few tablespoons of water before adding it to your pan.
  • Mix in chopped turkey, and then add to an 8x8 or similar sized casserole dish.
  • Scoop sweet potatoes in mounds around the top of your filling, and then gently spread into a layer across the top of your pan.
  • Bake for 25 minutes until bubbling and starting to brown on top.
