This is a traditional-style shepherd's pie like my Mum used to make but completely vegan. The wide ranges of animal substitute products are complemented by the range of fresh vegetables.
This was great! I made it using dairy products instead of making it vegan however I still kept it vegetarian by using the ground beef substitute. I also used butter in the mashed potatoes instead of cream cheese because I didn't have any. I'm always looking for tasty vegetarian recipes since recently becoming one and this is one I will definitely make again!! - 03 Feb 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Made this for Christmas. My brother's girlfriend is vegan, has been for several years, and we always feel bad because we're a meat and potatoes family and don't now what we can really feed her. This turned out quite well. She described it as "decadent" and my brother had seconds and thirds. Leftovers were finished at dinner tonight. Definitely keeping this one in my recipe box! My parents rated it as a 4. Put a little salt in the bottom half of the dish, and I think it really will earn that 5 star rating! - 26 Dec 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Great recipe! I did make a few changes to suit my tastes - I added mushrooms and pie crusts (I guess I made more of a "pot pie") Very yummy, and filling. I thought the mashed potato layer was fabulous. I would make this again, thanks for submitting! - 14 Jul 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
