Make the mashed cauliflower
Steam or pressure cook 1 head of cauliflower until it becomes soft.
In a mixing bowl or food processor add cauliflower florets, butter, garlic powder and sea salt. (Chives, cream cheese or other seasoning optional).
Blend or mash until it has the same consistency as mashed potatoes, then set aside.
Make the filling
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (204 degrees C).
In a skillet add oil on medium heat. Add the onions, carrots, and peppers. Sauté for 6-10 minutes, until lightly browned and set aside.
In a separate skillet brown meat, season with salt and pepper. Cook for 7-10 minutes, breaking apart the meat as you go.
Stir in the broth, coconut aminos, tomato paste, and Italian seasoning. Bring to a boil, then simmer, uncovered, for about 5 minutes, until most of the liquid evaporates and you have meat in a thick sauce. Remove from heat.
In a medium casserole dish combine meat and vegetables.
Use a spatula to evenly spread cauliflower mash over your meat and veggies
Bake for 10-15 minutes, until the edges are bubbly.
If desired, place under the broiler for 2-4 minutes, until the edges are golden brown.
