Shepherd's Pot Pie

The Forks Over Knives Shepherd's Pot Pie is a recipe I don't recommend unless you're up for a major challenge. Salt and pepper to taste aren't really enough to save the bland flavor of the mashed potato topping. Which isn't shocking. Mashed potatoes aren't good because of the potatoes, but because of the butter, cream, sour cream, cheese, cream cheese, or whatever it is you like to have in them. Potatoes and dairy products make great friends, and those dairy friends aren't invited to vegan parties.

I tried adding a bunch of chili powder and cumin to the bottom layer, but the batch was so large, it barely made a dent.


The recipe says it'll fit in a 9x13 dish, which is the size on the right. And I think both of these are really too full, so I'd say make a half batch. I don't dislike it enough to throw it away, but I don't see myself making it again. I add a ton of hot sauce when I eat it, and it's fine, but I'll be glad when I've finished it.
