Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie for St. Patrick’s Day

Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie for St. Patrick’s Day
We go big on St. Patrick’s Day. So big, in fact, that I’m already testing out some dinner ideas for the month of March.

Here’s a favorite dinner in my household – I changed it up a little, and happy I did. Easy, healthy and satisfying!

Shepherd’s pie usually is made with meat, however we like to keep things on the lighter side (as an excuse to eat more?) This layered pie can be made a day in advance and baked when ready.

Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie for St. Patrick’s Day

Ingredients

  • 6 large russet potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 bag frozen peas
  • 1 container of golden mushroom soup - get a good quality one!
  • 1 package of soy hamburger crumbles
  • fresh mushrooms
  • Monterey Jack Cheese (3/4 cup)

Instructions

  1. Peel, Cut & Boil the Russets . Mash when cooked and whip in butter and milk.
  2. Get a baking dish and coat bottom with a little olive oil.
  3. Put a layer of potatoes down (about 1" thick)
  4. Put a layer of soy hamburger crumbles down (frozen is ok) about 1/2" thick
  5. Put a layer of frozen peas down about 1/2" thick (Season with salt and pepper if you wish)
