Vegetarian Sheppards Pie

> There are many versions to making this and what I did was a combo of several. Here is what I did…
> Boil and mash white potatoe. I normally don’t peel them but wasn’t sure how that would go over for you and thought peelings might be hard for Carl in ours so I did this time. I put a little basil in it. You can do garlic as well if you want as well. I also used soy milk as that is what we have here but cow’s milk is fine, too. Instant potato can be used, though I have never used instant potatoes so I don’t know how it would be.
> I sauteed one or two onions.
> Once the onions are soft add the following:
> • One or two cans of Kidney Beans (I didn’t have quite enough to do two 9 x 13’s so I threw in a can of garbanzo beans)
> • 14 1/2 oz can of whole tomatoes, drained and cut up (I didn’t have enough of this either so I used some diced and some petite diced tomatoes which I would probably always do and not bother trying to cut up whole tomatoes)
> • Any veggies you want. You can do fresh or frozen, though frozen is obviously going to go quicker. I used a carrots, corn and peas mix I think, then added green beans. In the past I’ve also added fresh zuccini and summer squash. It’s whatever you like.
> • 8 oz can of tomato sauce (again, I found I was out of this so when I rinsed a can out I threw in a little of the watered down tomatoe from rinsing – maybe 1/2 a can or so.
> • 1 t. worcestershire sauce
> • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
> Heat all this to bubbly and frozen veggies thawed.
> Transfer to baking dish (the above is based on a smaller dish than I used so you may want to double some of the tomatoe, worcestershire and sugar).
> Drop mashed potatoes in mounds on veggie mix. Sprinkle with cheese (I used cheddar – medium)
> Bake uncovered in a 375 oven for 25 to 30 mins, or until heated through and cheese begins to brown (if it does!).
> As you can see, I don’t rigidly go by any recipe!! 🙂 Having done both frozen and fresh veggies I can say frozen is sooooooo much easier – no cutting, much shorter sauteeing time, etc…
> Enjoy!
