I have made this dish many, many times. This vegan version of the British classic is always a hit. I have an English friend who has lived in the states the last few years. When I mentioned the Shepherd’s pie at work, he was quite curious about it- and how it would taste. So, I went home that night and made a huge portion of it. The next day, armed with a container filled with the pie for his lunch, I went to work ready to be judged by the British native. Judged I was, he loved it.
