Traditional Shepherd's Pie uses meat as the base, however, if you're catering for a vegetarian, this Shepherd's Pie will make them very happy indeed. It is really tasty as well as being easy to prepare. It is a wonderful winter warmer meal and makes great left overs the next day too.

Im a vegetarian so always on the look out for tasty meals. This dish was an answer to my dreams, but really would appeal to anyone. Delicious! So much protein and goodness. I added extra tomatoes and a little water for moisture.
Thanks for the excellent question. I did add a little water (about half a cup) to the simmering veggie mix, and you could also add stock for even more flavor if you wish. Good luck Jenn - this is really tasty and is on our menu for dinner tonight too.
