Make the cauliflower-potato mash
Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Peel and medium-dice the potatoes. Add the potatoes and cauliflower to the boiling water and cook, 14 to 16 minutes, until very tender when pierced with a fork. Reserving 1 cup of the cooking water, drain the vegetables and return to the pot. Off the heat, add 2 tbsp of butter. Using a fork (or potato masher), mash the mixture, gradually adding the reserved cooking water to achieve your desired consistency; season with S&P to taste. Set aside in a warm spot.

Cook the vegetables
In a large, oven-safe pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the shallots and leeks; season with S&P. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until fragrant. Add the carrots and cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 6 minutes, until beginning to soften.

Cook the beef
To the pan of vegetables, add the ground beef* and Worcestershire sauce; season with the spice blend and S&P. Cook, breaking up the meat with a spoon, 4 to 6 minutes, until just cooked through. Add the tomato paste and cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until dark red. Add ¼ cup of water and cook, scraping any browned bits (or fond) from the bottom of the pan, 2 to 3 minutes, until the liquid has slightly reduced.

Finish the parmentier & serve
Top the beef and vegetables with the potato-cauliflower mash; spread the mash evenly to cover the surface of the pan completely. Place the pan in the oven and broil, 3 to 5 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove from the oven and let stand for 2 minutes before serving. Garnish with the parsley and divide the finished parmentier between your plates. Bon appétit!
