Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
In a pan brown mince on medium heat until cooked through – removing from heat once done. Steam or boil cauliflower for 5 minutes or until soft. Combine cauliflower, chicken stock and 1 tsp of garlic in a food processor or blender, and blend until smooth.
Place green beans in a steamer, spreading over ½ tsp of garlic. Steam for 3-4 minutes.
Place remaining vegetables, herbs, and ½ of beef broth into a pan and sautee until tender, add in browned beef and stir together for 1 minute.
Transfer meat and vegetable mix into ramekins, spreading mashed cauliflower over the top until evenly coated. Place in the oven for 20-30 minutes until the sides start to bubble and the top begins to brown.
Remove from the oven and let it rest for about 5 minutes before serving. Serve with steamed green beans on the side and season with salt and pepper.
