Shepherd’s Pie

Do you crave something tasty and filling? Well, Shepherd pie is an distinguished option for fulfilling your craving at either lunch or dinner. Shepherd’s pie is considered a wintry delight. The tasty combination of delicious vegetables and broth with the potato mash topping gives it the iconic taste.

I used Vegan beef in the recipe, and it turned out to be as delicious as the traditional one. Also, plant-based beef is sustainable and contains the same protein as the original one.

This recipe requires only a small number of ingredients and is flavorfully satisfying and filling. Let’s begin.
