Hearty savory shepherds pie, completely plant-based and packed with goodness
My first real memory of shepherds pie was having it at a pub in England after a long, chilly driving day. So hearty, comforting, and satisfying. I don’t remember my mom making this dish, which hails from England and was traditionally made with lamb or mutton, or ground beef (cottage pie). Leftover potatoes were mashed and placed on top instead of a pastry crust.
I simplified this dish by using some pre-prepped items from the grocery. Since it’s still a little time consuming, you could make it ahead up until the baking step, then pop it into the oven an hour before dinner.
If you have access to Trader Joe’s, I purchased their pre-cooked lentils, pre-cut butternut squash, and mirepoix, all in the refrigerated case, plus one package of their frozen sweet potato purée. Watch me make this on Facebook Live!
