Food Friday: Soy Curls Shepherd's Pie

Yes!  You can use soy curls to make a creditable shepherd's pie if you are vegetarian or even vegan.

Shepherd's Pie with Soy Curls

Soak 1 cup soy curls in 1 cup water in which you have dissolved 1 teaspoon vegetarian Better Than Bouillon for 10-15 minutes.  Shred in blender or food processor without draining.

Wash 6 small potatoes  and one half peeled sweet onion.  Chop these vegetables into large chunks and cook in Instant Pot on soup setting for 4 minutes.

In a large bowl place shredded soy curls and 1 can corn kernels including liquid.  Add 1 teaspoon garlic granules and 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning and salt to taste. Mix well. Add 1-2 Tablespoons whole wheat flour; mix until flour disappears then place this mixture in casserole dish.  Put in 350 degree F. oven to start warming up.

This shepherd's pie looks nasty but tasted great.  Well, maybe not great, but certainly was tasty leaving us wanting more.

Drain and mash potatoes and onion, saving the juice for vegetable broth in another recipe.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Add butter if you have to.

Bring the started-heating soy curls/corn casserole out of oven and spread mashed potatoes on top.  Return to oven for 20-30 minutes, until sauce thickens.

Makes four small servings.  Or normal (non-piggies ) may serve more.  This was really good and hard to stop eating.
