1. Vegan Shepherd’s Pie (Serves 4)

Shepherd's Pie

This is a rich, filling dish that takes its inspiration from traditional shepherd’s pie – the main ingredients of which are minced lamb and mashed potatoes. The meat component is replaced with a mixture of veggies and the result is, in my opinion, much more interesting and flavour-filled. The rich gravy is made with a mix of vegetable broth and soy sauce.

Ingredients

  1. 1lb Sweet Potatoes
  2. 1lb White Potatoes
  3. Handful of Mushrooms
  4. 1 Chopped Head of Cauliflower
  5. 1 Chopped Head of Broccoli
  6. 1 Red bell pepper
  7. 250ml Vegetable stock
  8. 1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
  9. Tbsp Cornflour

Method

  1. Boil and mash the potatoes, adding a little non-dairy milk to loosen the mix.
  2. Dice and saute the onions, mushrooms and the pepper. Use a few tablespoons of water to prevent sticking.
  3. Add the vegetable stock, soy sauce and thicken with the cornflour.
  4. Add the remaining veg, bring to the boil and leave to simmer for ten minutes. Meanwhile, heat the oven to 180C/ fan 160C/ gas 4.
  5. After the veg is cooked but still retains some bite transfer it to a casserole dish, spoon over the mash and cook in the oven for fifteen minutes.

2. Sprouts and Avocado on Toast (Serves 1)

Toast Avocado

This, along with some soup, is my go-to lunchtime meal. I eat it almost every day. The mixture of hummus, sprouts and avocado is absolutely scrumptious. There’s also the added benefit of it being particularly healthy! Sprouts are little powerhouses of nutrition and various studies have shown their immense disease-inhibiting benefits. They also look great happily growing away in a jar on your kitchen window.

Ingredients

  1. Wholemeal Bread
  2. Hummus
  3. Seed Sprouts (Broccoli and Radish are Good Options)
  4. Avocado
  5. Cucumber (Optional)

  4. Sprinkle the sprouts on top.
  5. (Bonus) Add a crack of pepper if you’re feeling experimental….
