Can I make this recipe Keto?
To make this Cottage Pie Keto, you would need to substitute the potatoes for mashed celery root or mashed cauliflower. You also need to change the gluten free flour for a lower carb flour choice. Some options are coconut flour, tapioca starch, or arrowroot flour. Watch your vegetable carbs as well. I would also use a low carb wine. Here are my recommendations.
