What is Vegan Shepherd's Pie?
It is a meatless take on traditional meaty shepherds pie (cottage pie) we are all familiar with. This Vegan version is made by substituting canned lentils, mushrooms and meatless ground crumbles for ground meat or lamb and adding frozen peas, mushroom broth, herbs and spices and topping it off with dairy free mashed potatoes! Ultimate comfort food!
Can you freeze Shepherd's Pie?
Absolutely! Once the pie is completely cool, cover with tin foil and freeze for 1-2 months. Or freeze slices individually in smaller Tupperware containers.
How To Make Vegan Shepherd's Pie:
Start by making the recipe for Instant Pot Vegan Mashed Potatoes.
While the potatoes are cooking preheat the oven to 350° and then start on the filling: Heat a medium-large pot or Dutch Oven to medium heat. Add the oil, onions and a pinch of salt and pepper. Sauté onions for 5 minutes until they are softening and starting to brown a little. Add in the chopped mushrooms, garlic and gardein beefless ground. Cook for 3-5 minutes until mushrooms are soft.
Add the Italian seasoning and flour and stir to combine everything.
Now add the rest of ingredients except peas. Bring to a simmer uncovered on medium heat for just a few minutes to thicken, then add in the peas.
Pour the vegetable filling into a deep casserole dish (I use my 13.8 x 9 inch lasagna dish). Add the mashed potatoes in dollops on top of the filling. Spread the potatoes evenly over the top.
Spray the top with cooking spray, season with salt and pepper and bake uncovered at 350° for 30 minutes. For full recipe ingredients and instructions see recipe card below.
Enjoy! Serves 8-10
Great served with a green salad or Caesar salad, and some tasty garlic bread or enjoy as your main dish for Thanksgiving or Christmas!
