Turkey Shepherd Pie

This recipe comes out of a random food craving for comfort food. Comfort food to me is anything that has potatoes and gravy. But, my waistline would not appreciate the fact that potatoes and gravy would cause me to buy new pants and hit the gym more than normal. I took the original recipe for shepherd's pie and modified it to fit a healthier version of the original. Here goes nothing

Brown the ground turkey with salt and pepper until cooked thoroughly
Place in a bowl the turkey and cook the onions, mushrooms, and garlic until the onions are translucent, and mushrooms are not producing liquid
Add the ground turkey back in, and then add the olive oil and flour. Cooking that for a little bit to make the flour taste out.
Place in the chicken stock and stir until no lumps.
Add the carrots, peas, and corn
Add the seasonings to your liking.
