VEGETARIAN SHEPHERD'S PIE

1 lb. ground soy

1/2 onion diced

4 carrots chopped

1 cup fresh grean beans chopped

1 tsp. garlic

1 can cream of celery, or vegetable soup for vegans

1 tsp. horseradish

herbs de provence to taste

salt and pepper to taste

1 tsp. worcestershire

2 cups mashed potatoes

1 cup grated colby cheese, or vegan cheese

Saute carrots, onions, garlic and beans until well done in olive oil. Stir in soup, horseradish, herbs, worcestershire, salt and pepper. Put in casserole dish and spread mashed potatoes on top. Cook at 350 for 20 minutes. Put grated cheese on top and cook another 5 minutes.

You can make Shepherd's Pie basically with any ingredients you want because there is really no standard recipe, so depending on what you have available in your kitchen, or what ingredients you prefer you can substitute just about anything for the vegetables and spices, if you don't like soy crumble you can even omit that and it is still incredibly delicious.

Watch out for worcestershire sauce, many brands contain fish. You can buy vegetarian special versions, though. Recipe sounds lovely! I would leave out the horseradish though ;-)

You can replace the soup with a white sauce. cook 2 tablespoons of flour in 2 tablespoons of oil until it starts to turn yellow, then add 1 1/2 cups of water or stock slowly, stirring, until it thickens up.

Yes, this is true I know some contain achovies, eek. Soy sauce would be a suitable replacement. Also I think broth would work as well, you could try a vegetarian gray if you like a heartier shepherd's pie as well.

I made something to this effect this weekend, with white beans and gravy instead of the soy ground and soup. I also left out the cheese (I've never had shepherd's pie with cheese, so no loss, ha). I added some autumn-y herbs (thyme, marjoram, etc), which worked very well.

Yum!

I've got great response from the Shepherds pie recipe found in the book Modern Vegetarian Cooking by Peter Berley. In general the book is great. Seitan and mushrooms are a major component of the recipe - string beans are not added in my rendition. He also uses mirin as part of the seasoning. I love it when cooked to specs.

I would love to see the recipe you recommend. Could you post it? Thanks.
