And simply as Emily beloved her buddy’s boyfriend, I beloved shepherd’s pie. It’s a dish fashionable within the UK and is usually made with floor meat, gravy, and veggies topped with a mashed potato crust. (Repeat after me: Mashed. Potato. Crust.) Fortunately, you don’t must eat meat to benefit from the singular consolation that’s this pleasant dish. Within the newest episode of Effectively+Good’s YouTube collection Cook dinner With Us, chef Palak Patel shares her vegan shepherd’s pie recipe.

You begin by making the mashed potatoes that can flip into the crust—to make the mashed potatoes vegan, Patel replaces the butter and cream you’d sometimes use with vegan butter, oat milk, and plant-based parmesan cheese. (Bookmark her ideas for Thanksgiving prep, thank me later.) As a substitute of floor meat, Patel makes use of a trifecta of gut-healthy components: cauliflower, lentils, and candy potatoes. They’re every excessive in fiber, which feeds the useful micro organism in your intestine and retains every little thing shifting via your digestive tract. Plus, every vegetable is wealthy in distinctive antioxidants and different advantages that will help you get probably the most bang in your buck, nutritionally talking.

Oh, and like final week’s vegetable dal recipe, this meal additionally comes collectively in a single pot for straightforward cleanup. “It’s layered with lovely mashed potatoes which can be creamy, and so they’re good and bubbly from the broiler, I can’t wait to dig into this,” Patel says. And as soon as she takes a chew, she says it’s “head-wrecking good. I really feel like that is autumn on a plate.”  Hungry but? Get the complete vegan shepherd’s pie recipe by watching the video.
