So, how do you take this classic combo and improve it even more? That’s easy --make it into a pie. This recipe makes an unbelievably delicious country beef and vegetable pie that’s 100% gluten-free and paleo-friendly thanks to the cauliflower ‘pie crust’.

Country beef and vegetable pie is one of those old homestyle meals that you just know is going to be utterly satisfying each and every time that you eat it. This recipe adds a unique paleo twist to this classic meal by tossing traditional pie crust right out the window and using blended cauliflower toppings as a delicious topping in its place. The end result? A gluten-free, paleo-friendly pie that is oh so good and hits the spot perfectly.

The Perfect Marriage of Vegetables and Beef  

This recipe features a perfect combination of vegetables to go along with a juicy pound of lean rump steak. It’s got it all — carrots, celery, onion, garlic, mushrooms, tomatoes, rosemary, and of course the cauliflower that has been blended into an excellent pie crust substitute. Traditional pie crusts are made with ingredients such as refined flour, which can be a common cause of inflammation in many people. (1) As paleo diets cut out all refined flours due to their grain content, we had to come up with a way to make the perfect pie crust for this beef and vegetable pie.

Cauliflower – The Secret Ingredient in This Paleo Pie Crust

I’ve covered the great benefits of cauliflower ‘rice’ and all of its uses in paleo-friendly meals at length many times already. Whether it’s used as a straight up rice replacement or even used as a base for an alternative to bread dough in order to make yummy cauliflower toast, it truly does have many great uses in a paleo diet. Best of all, this paleo pie crust won’t trigger inflammation in your body like refined wheat would. Instead, cauliflower could actually help to lower inflammation due to its high antioxidant content.
