Vegan shepherd's pie

January has kicked in and with that comes the rush of healthy eating and detoxing after an indulgent festive season. However, with the freezing cold weather, healthy eating doesn’t have to mean cold, limp salads. Try our comforting and nutritional vegan shepherd’s pie and make eating well enjoyable.

Ingredients
Serves 8

  • 1.2kg Maris Piper or King Edward potatoes
  • 50ml vegetable oil
  • 30g dried porcini mushrooms (soaked in hot water for 15 mins, then drained - reserve the liquid)
  • 2 large leeks, chopped
  • 2 small onions, chopped
  • 4 medium carrots, cubed
  • 1 vegan vegetable stock cube
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
