Vegan Shepard's Pie, AKA Cottage Pie Recipe

Share this page:


Wikipedia says that this dish originated in Britain, originally made from beef with a crust of mashed potatoes. It was geared toward 'cottage' dwellers, i.e. the working poor. Anywho, it turned out to be a surprisingly good dish- one that I can see being a go-to meal for sure. I used tempeh in the place of beef, and topped it with Daiya cheese. (Tip: Add Daiya cheese only for last few minutes of baking so it melts nicely but doesn't burn.) To make it even healthier, make a homemade cheesy sauce, a gravy (such as onion gravy), or just skip the topping.

Did I say this is yummy? ;) I really do think so... For this recipe you will need to:

  1. Prepare baked tempeh.
  2. Prepare vegan mashed potatoes.
  3. Place tempeh on bottom of casserole dish. 
  4. Place mashed potatoes on top of tempeh and level out.
  5. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Potatoes will form a nice, but not hard, crust on the top.
  6. Add Daiya cheese.
  7. Enjoy!!! :)
Until next time.... God bless!
