Ingredients: A chopped onion, a chopped/crushed garlic clove, olive oil, pork mince (I used about a kg), a sprinkle of fennel seeds, a grated apple (skin and all), very finely chopped broccoli, baby spinach, a small-medium cauliflower chopped into small bits, a chunk of butter, a dash of milk (of your choice, or even water) salt and pepper. A couple of tablespoons of almond meal and parmesan cheese.

Steps: Saute the onion and garlic in olive oil on a low heat until softening. Add the pork mince and stir on the heat. Once pork is almost cooked through, add the grated apple, fennel seeds, broccoli, spinach and salt and pepper to taste. Continue to stir on heat until cooked through.

IMG_4437 (1)While the pork mince is cooking away, put your little bits of cauliflower in a saucepan and pour milk until it is about half way up the cauliflower. Add butter and salt. Stir it over a medium heat until the cauliflower absorbs the moisture and becomes soft and creamy. Stir it vigorously at the end so it becomes a cauliflower cream.

Pour the pork mix into a baking dish and make it even. Spread the cauliflower cream on top. Sprinkle over almond meal, parmesan and salt and pepper. Bake on about 200 degrees celsius for about 20 minutes, grilling at the end if you want a bit of crispiness on top. Enjoy your healthy pork pie! Yum!
