SHEPHERDS PIEI made 4 individual pies in these cute little dishes.  If you make one big one just use a casserole dish.  The only thing you have to do to make this vegetarian if following any recipe is to switch out tvp ( rehydrated) or meatless ground beef from health food store in place of lamb or beef.

shepherds pieIt’s such a simple dish and really you do not need to be exact.  For years I have used the Colemans seasoning packet because there is a flavor in there I love and I still don’t quite know what it is.   But, basically, you saute chopped onions, carrots, peas, ( I used broccoli and cauliflower), till veggies are tender then you add the veggie ground beef. Add  worcestershire sauce, red wine, vegetable stock ,thyme, salt and pepper, maybe a dash of dry mustard, a bit of butter and a bit of flour and keep cooking till you have a nice gravy.  The consistency is up to you ( we like it thick !)

shepherds pieButter the dish.  Fill with meat/gravy.  Top with mashed potatoes and pop in the oven for about 20 minutes.  Nice n easy.


About sosatisfying

I grew up a vegetarian in So Cal. I lived for quite a few years in NYC and now I live in Atlanta, GA. I guess these various regions have had an affect on my cooking/eating style. Mexican food is certainly my comfort food - the more down home the better. Italian is my daily bread. And I love greens, grits and anything made better with Vidalia onions.
