Harvest Vegetable Shepherd's Pie

Serves 8
Time 55 min
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. The mashed sweet potato crust makes a fabulous topping for this pie. If you wish, make a classic mashed potato topping or use a favorite packaged variety. Both the filling and topping may be made two days prior to assembling. Watch our how-to video.

Method

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Add tempeh, carrots and onion; cook until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes.

Add potatoes, broth, tamari and thyme; simmer until potatoes are just tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

Stir in corn, peas, salt and pepper and bring to a simmer.

Combine the cornstarch in a small bowl with 1/4 cup water; mix until smooth and stir into the skillet, stirring until combined and slightly thickened. Stir in sage.

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Transfer tempeh mixture to an ovenproof casserole or baking dish.

Top with sweet potatoes and spread out evenly.

Sprinkle with almonds and bake until the sweet potatoes and almonds are golden brown and the filling is bubbling, 25 to 30 minutes.
