Vegan Shepherds Pie

One of my favourites growing up was a nice homely shepherds pie, This is my vegan version that I make fairly often. It’s made with soy mince and veggies 🙂 Add and subtract what ever ingredients you would like, pack it with more veggies if you wish! This is one of my go to Vegan hearty meals. I normally pair it with some form of greens to keep the calories down and to feel fuller and get those vital goods!


What You Need

  • Soy Mince (Half Pack)
  • 4 Carrots
  • 500 ml vegetable Stock
  • 1 Tin Chopped Tomatoes (use fresh if you have them works well too)
  • 1 Onion
  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • Potatoes (I used around 5 Large potatoes, boiled)

What to do

Step 1; Heat a little water in a large frying pan, and boil a few litres of water in another saucepan.

Step 2; Chop potatoes into small pieces and boil in the saucepan (I personally don’t peel my potatoes as I am lazy, but if you want a really creamy mash feel free to  peel first, I like to leave chunks in mine for added texture)

Step 3; Chop the onion and garlic and fry in the pan, add a little water as you need it in replace of oil.

Step 4; Once browned a little, add in your soy mince (I use frozen, so fry that off until it is thawed and browning)

Step 5; As it is thawing, peel and chop your carrots into small rounds and chuck them in too, Add in the stock and the tomatoes to the mixture. You should now have a very full looking frying pan 🙂 Turn the heat down and leave that to simmer until the carrots have softened and the mixture has blended nicely 🙂

Step 6; Pour the MOC meat mixture into a baking tray or dish, drain and rinse the potatoes and mash them. Add the mash mixture on top of your tray bake 🙂 pop in the oven for 15-20 minutes just to let the juices blend and the top brown.

(You can also freeze it before this point)

It can be frozen or stored in the fridge for a few days and as it has no meat, eggs, dairy inside, it can be reheated after a few days.

I love this as a main evening meal as it is super filling and delicious, and hearty, like a proper sunday mum made shepherds pie 🙂

Obviously this could be paired with what ever you would like, I know many like it with chips.. but if you are being health conscious this new year then a side of salad or cooked greens all the way!
