Pie the Sheppard

Posted on December 19, 2015. Filed under: Main Course, Uncategorized | Tags: , , |

For some reason, almost all of the episodes of Chopped I’ve watched had someone making a sheppard’s pie. So, naturally that got stuck in my head. I really didn’t want to make it with ground beef, so I decided to do a vegetarian version.

Not going to lie, the Tofutruky “beef” has an odd flavor, but the whole thing still tastes really good. I also decided to use sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes for the topping, because sweet potatoes are just better.

  1. Bake your sweet potatoes in a 350 degree oven until soft. Take the skin off and put it in your mixer. Add salt, pepper, curry powder, tumeric, paprika, dash of almond milk, baking soda, flour, and mix. Set aside.

  3. Put the mixture on the bottom of an 8 by 8 pan. Spread the sweet potato mixture on top.
  4. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes.


I was going to write this yesterday, but I wanted to play the Sims, I hadn’t played in forever and it was nice to relax. Granted, I relaxed a little too much considering I forgot to make my coffee for this morning. Oh well. Haha
