I know that Shepherd’s Pie was born precisely as a meat dish. I know, vegetarian reinterpretations are not always a lucky idea for these well-known and famous dishes that have precise rules by which they must be made. I know, you can blame me for doing something that has nothing to do with Shepherd’s Pie. Anyway, I wanted to do it like this.
After the necessary explanations, I can then begin to explain that in this period in which I am looking for simple and perhaps light dishes, this flan was a very practical idea because it can be prepared in advance and I admit that the next day is even better than when it’s just done.
I simply used mushrooms and vegetables available at this time to replace the mixed minced meat used in this recipe.
The vegetables chosen, however, can be decided at will based on taste, even legumes such as chickpeas and peas can be a good idea to add to this preparation.
For the vegan version, just omit the cheese and the egg that I added to the potato cream and follow the same procedure, simply using mashed potatoes on the surface, it is less tasty, but still good.
This Veggie Shepherd’s Pie recipe is taken from the blog Kitty’s Kitchen (in Italian) where you can also find other interesting recipes.
