Vegan Mushroom Shepherd’s Pie

by | Updated: September 27th, 2021

Shepherd’s pie is an age-old comfort dish with variants from Europe to Indonesia and Canada to Brazil. While originally conceived by home cooks trying to cleverly extend leftover meat, these dishes now have many vegan variations that have been (lovingly) nicknamed “shepherdless pie.” This recipe features the customary cloud-like layer of mashed potatoes, but it tops a medley of mushrooms, veggies and a hint of sweet apple. Make no mistake, it’s just as filling as the pies of yore, but with a gentle (and tasty!) turn toward plant-based. Dig in!
