Harvest Vegetable Sheperd's Pie Recipe

Sure, navigating a specific way of eating can be challenging — but it doesn’t have to be. "If you or a family member sticks to a vegan, vegetarian or gluten-free diet, we want to give you the tips and tricks you need to turn those limits into possibilities," says Molly Siegler, food editor at Whole Foods Market. The latest videos in our Special Diet Recipes series on the Whole Foods Market YouTube channel offer up fall recipe inspiration. Watch and learn!

Harvest Vegetable Sheperd's Pie (vegan, vegetarian): Shepherd’s pie was originally created as a means of using up leftover Sunday roast, so it’s traditionally made with ground beef or lamb. We created this recipe as a hearty vegetable dish suited for holiday gatherings, although as it turns out, this dish is popular all year long.

Roasted Cauliflower Steaks (vegan, vegetarian, gluten free): A whole head of cauliflower can be sliced to create several large “steaks.” Roasting these cauliflower steaks along with the remaining florets is a fun and different way to enjoy this favorite seasonal vegetable.

Cocoa-Almond Baked Breakfast Quinoa (vegan, vegetarian, gluten free): Nutrient-packed quinoa, hemp seeds and hemp milk add protein, fiber and essential fatty acids to your morning. Whip up over the weekend, and then enjoy for breakfast during the week.
