Vegan Shepherd's Pie

Vegan Shepherd's Pie

Posted by Tasty on Wednesday, November 4, 2015

Saw this video on Facebook and loved the simplicity of it. I already know how to make shepherd's pie but thought I'd try to go by this recipe.

I feel like the liquid is too much for this pie. Maybe it was because my veggies were smaller, I don't know. But no mind, I made it work.

I used the last of the Thanksgiving mashed potatoes. Just added a couple more boiled potatoes and mashed them all fluffy.

Came out beautiful and very tasty!

Vegan Thanksgiving 2015

Happy Thanksgiving! Our menu today: Tofurky Roast with Orange Herb Gravy, Kale salad with dried cranberries in a shallot mustard vinaigrette, Mustard Green Beans, Herb Stuffing, Mashed Potatoes, Baked Sweet Potatoes and Apples, Cranberry sauce with Mandarin Oranges. And for dessert: Bryanna Clark Grogan's pumpkin pie!

Mustard Green Beans from The Complete Vegan Cookbook.

Herb stuffing from The Vegan Family Cookbook.

Baked sweet potatoes and apples from The Complete Vegan Cookbook (no sugar added to mine).

Tofurky Roast!

Bryanna's pie never disappoints. I was going to make pumpkin custard but I couldn't deviate from my usual! Maybe next year I'll do something different.

Broccoli Sweet Potato Soup, Heidi Ho Cheeze.

Great soup recipe from The Happy Pear cookbook. I used Japanese yam and it was beautiful. Smooth and creamy.

If you don't have this cookbook, you must get it. I got it on Amazon for $20.

A new item to try. A basic cashew cheeze that is great on crackers.

But, I used it in salad and it was amazing! Also added coconut bacon (recipe from Salad Samurai) that made it even more amazing.

Huge Photo Post To Make You Hungry.

Was going through my food photos and I realized I neglected to share a bunch of deliciousness that I've been eating. Check it out!

I'll start with the black bean burgers I made tonight after work. Very simple, just black beans, onions, garlic, herbs, spices and oats to bind the mixture. Bake for 30 minutes flipping halfway and you've got a tasty burger. One can black beans makes 4 burgers.

Served with salsa and vegan thousand island sauce.

One weekend I made homemade hummus, tomato bruschetta and olive tapenade. Love eating this stuff with fresh bread.

The grape leaves are from Trader Joes and they come in a can.

A night out at CPK. The Tuscan hummus is vegan!

The roasted veggie salad is also vegan with the ginger hoisin dressing. So good.

Homemade baked falafel. Vegan with a Vengeance recipe never fails.

Served with Vegan Diner home fries!

In a pita with luscious tahini sauce.

Homemade pizza deliciousness with Trader Joe's dough and vegan mozzarella!

Night out at Tacomiendo for veggie taco and potato taco (half eaten)! Order with NO CHEESE!

Guac and chips!

Tacomiendo has great juices. This one is the Healthy Heart: Carrot, Ginger and Apple!

Tender Greens in Culver City has the freshest food.

Happy Vegan Salad has edamame hummus, spelt salad, tabbouleh, quinoa salad and mixed greens. So tasty and filling.

Roasted tomato soup with basil oil is so warming.

Breakfast tofu sandwich.

With lots of ketchup and Vegenaise on toast.

Sunday Roast!

Craved a Sunday veggie roast today so I made the perfect roast potatoes, heirloom rainbow carrots, brussels sprouts and cauliflower. And to go on top of all that, Bryanna Clark Grogan's vegan brown gravy. SO GOOD!
