Simple Shepherd’s Pie (Vegan)

Budget Friendly, Too

While trying to be budget-friendly, use up the food we currently have (with the discovery of potatoes hiding in the cupboard!) and come up with a creative dinner, we decided on Shepherd’s Pie. A welcome change from our habitual pasta and veggies.

I have made this dish before, but with my mom’s recipe, which I have misplaced.. so I relied on Google to bring me a sufficient recipe. Hint: Google failed! Not entirely, but mostly. I got an idea for the temperature and that there should be a liquid mixed with your base but every recipe I found for a ‘vegan’ Shepherd’s Pie, had a plethora of extra ingredients that we definitely didn’t have or  didn’t care to have in the meal. I really wanted to find a simple recipe for the ease and the lack of ingredients we had.
