a teaspoon of cold apple cider vinegar
the water

Measure all the necessary ingredients and leave them in the fridge for 15 minutes.

How to Make Vegan Shepherd's Pie & # 8211 Best Tips & Tricks

1. What are the best spices for the vegan pastor's pie recipe

The secret to making this vegan recipe tasty is to intensify its flavor with strongly flavored greens and spices such as rosemary, thyme or oregano.

They have a slightly woody flavor, and the best way to extract the flavor is to boil them in liquid to infuse the sauce.

Unlike parsley or coriander, which are greens that are added at the end, they are meant to give food a stronger taste and aroma.

They fit perfectly in the recipe of shepherd's vegan pie, giving a lot of flavor to the mushrooms, which without these greens would certainly not be as tasty.

Spices such as smoked paprika, chilli powder and cumin are other perfect ingredients in the vegan shepherd's pie recipe, as they somewhat mimic the taste and aroma of meat.

In the end, the spices you choose depend on the type of flavor you want.

Cumin and chili give food a tasty and consistent vibe, and go well with Latin-inspired dishes. Smoked paprika adds a sweet smoky aroma typical of Eastern European dishes.

The secret is to add the spices early to completely release its flavor and to infuse the sauce as well as possible.

2. What are the best mushrooms for the shepherd's pie recipe?

You can use almost any kind of mushroom in this recipe for Shepherd & # 8217s Vegan Pie, but I recommend large, meaty mushrooms such as portobello, cremini, king oyster, mushrooms, pork or pleurotus.

Compared to others that can break very easily, these types of mushrooms have a more consistent texture, similar to meat.

To give the pie the best texture and flavor, cut a few thinner mushrooms and the others into larger pieces. Thus the smaller pieces will soften more and infuse the sauce with their flavor, while the larger pieces will provide texture.

3. The best way to make vegan shepherd's pie

As I mentioned earlier, you can make vegan shepherd's pie in many ways.

The traditional method is to make stew and puree on the stove, before assembling all the ingredients and transferring the pie to the oven.

This method is best if you make a maximum of 4-6 servings because everything fits in a pot and you just have to wait for it to be done in the oven.

One of the important components of this shepherd's pie recipe is mashed potatoes. I bet you didn't know you could make super delicious and dairy-free puree, did you?

Well, I will reveal two secrets that will help you make a super delicious puree without using milk and butter.

First of all, I used white potatoes for cooking because they have a creamy texture compared to white ones for baking which are richer in starch and drier. That way, you won't need butter.

Second, replace regular milk and butter with coconut or almond milk and vegetable butter. Honestly, you won't even feel the difference.

4. How to flavor the pie

Another secret to making the vegan shepherd's pie a rich taste and flavor is to use strong flavored vegetables such as onions, carrots and celery, a little red wine and a tablespoon of vegan Worcestershire sauce. These will make the sauce thicker and a little gluten-free flour will make it thicker.

When you arrange the puree over the stew, you can play with it a bit! If you make some ridges and notched edges instead of leveling it perfectly, the shepherd's pie will have some more ripe and crispy pieces. Yummm!

The vegan shepherd's pie is cooked in the preheated oven at 180 ° C, for 10 minutes or until it starts to bubble. If you bake it for another 2-3 minutes, a crispy golden crust will form on top which will give it an extra texture and flavor.

5. How to make a vegan shepherd's pie recipe in an Instant Pot multicooker

Another popular method of making shepherd's pie is in a multicooker Instant Pot. If you don't know what the Instant Pot * is, this is a multicooker with a lot of functions such as slow cooker, pressure cooker, rice cooker, yogurt, steam cooking, sauté, and others.

The most important thing is that using this Instant Pot you can cook dishes that would normally take you a few hours, in an extraordinarily short time. It is also very easy to clean and can cook many dishes.

To make the shepherd's pie in an Instant Pot, follow the steps below:

  1. Using the Sauté function of the Instant Pot, saute the carrots, onions, celery and mushrooms.
  2. Add flour, red wine, tomato paste, greens, spices, vegetable soup concentrate, salt and pepper.
  3. To cook the potatoes, put a steaming basket in the pot and place the chopped potatoes on top.
  4. Put the lid on and cook under pressure at HIGH for 3 minutes.
  5. Transfer the filling to a plate.
  6. Crush the potatoes and mix them with vegetable butter, coconut milk *, salt and pepper, and arrange them on top of the stew.
  7. Cook in the oven according to the recipe below.

Very easy, isn't it ?! You will only soil two dishes, you will save space, and the pastor's pie will be on your table in a very short time.

6. How to make meal planning with the vegan pastor's pie

Another important thing about the vegan pastor's pie is that it is perfect for meal planning.

To make it in advance, prepare the stew and the puree separately, then put the stew in individual oven pans *. Place the puree on top, put the lid on and leave in the fridge before serving.

This way, you will be able to cook exactly how much you will need whenever you want to serve, leaving the rest for later.

Before reheating it in the oven, it is good to cover the bowl with baking paper * to keep it moist, so that the stew and potatoes do not dry out.

You can also put the pans in the freezer if you want to keep them longer but it will take twice as long to cook.

Usually 20-25 minutes are enough to bake the pie after it has been frozen, and remember to remove the pans from the oven only when they are hot and bubbling.

I love the fact that this recipe is perfect for meal planning and that it can be made in time and reheated quickly whenever I want to serve. Especially when I don't have time to cook at all.

7. What else can we serve with this Shepherd's Pie

The vegan shepherd's pie is very consistent due to the mushroom base and the potato topping, so he doesn't need any other dishes next to it.

A green salad is perfect to complement the rich flavors of this pie, and I like to serve it with a glass of red wine that goes perfectly with the mushroom sauce.

For the most edible of you, cereal salads like tabbouleh with quinoa, or a hummus with crispy vegetables are perfect for extra protein and fiber.

This vegan shepherd's pie recipe is absolutely amazing. The mushroom base is very fragrant due to the ripe mushrooms, the aromatic greens and the red wine, and the potato topping is creamy and a little crunchy.

It is perfect if you cook for several people and is the ideal candidate for Christmas meals, Easter, or any other holiday.

Remember that you can do it in advance and reheat it, so it's perfect if you have guests and you don't want to be a slave in the kitchen.

Perfect for special occasions, but cheap and easy to make in the evening, this vegan shepherd's pie will definitely become a super popular food in your home.

American Pie with pumpkin it's one of the desserts I've always wanted to try. I kept seeing it in all the American movies and shows and I was wondering what it would taste like. We make pumpkin pie, but it is different from the American recipe, both as a filling and as a dough. Honestly, I've never been a big fan of pumpkin pie. My father likes them very much, and my mother made them every autumn, but I always prefer baked pumpkin with a little sugar. Grandma grows Turkish pumpkins, which she leaves in the garden until the frost falls. That way they were tastier.

He then baked them in the stove oven. Grandma has a stove with a hob and oven, and in winter she cooked on the stove and in the oven she baked pumpkin, apples or quince. It had the sweetest and best pumpkins and there was no need to put sugar on top of it, although we children always asked for sugar for pumpkin. Grandma didn't make the pie, maybe that's why I don't kill myself after her. But I tried the American one because I was very curious about its taste. In addition, I wanted to test the recipe in my new electric grill Tefal OptiGrill Snacking & Baking. It has a special accessory with which we can also bake.

I thought it was a great idea to be able to bake cakes in an electric grater. In this way, the grill is transformed into a complete cooking appliance. What I like about it is the fact that it is not an ordinary grill, but a high-performance one that automatically detects the thickness of the meat that we place on the cooking surface. In this way we can cook beef perfectly, whether we want it to be in the blood, medium cooked or well cooked. I used the Optigrill grill both to bake the pumpkin and to bake the American pumpkin pie, with the help of the snack and baking accessory.

The dough was tender, with butter, and they filled a fine one with pumpkin, whipped cream and eggs. I added sugar and sour cream for extra flavor and a sour hue. For the flavor I put cinnamon, but you can also put nutmeg, cardamom or cloves. I cooked the pie for 40 minutes in Optigrill until the filling was set. You can bake the American pumpkin pie in the usual oven at 150 degrees for 40-50 minutes. For another preparation made at Optigrill, you can follow the recipe roast beef with flavored butter.


Ingredients Apple Pie:

  • 350 grams of flour
  • 150 grams of sugar (I used brown sugar)
  • 175 grams of cold butter
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 2 yolks
  • cold water
  • filling:6 large granny smith apples, 100 grams of raisins, 1 cup sugar (200 ml.), 4 tablespoons full of starch, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon tip,
  • Furthermore:1 tablespoon semolina, 1 egg yolk, powdered sugar

Preparing dough for apple pie:

For the dough, I prepared a pate-brisee: I mixed the salt with the flour and the sugar in a bowl and I added the cold butter, cut into cubes (1). I incorporated the butter in the flour, with the help of the fork (do not put your hand on the butter, because it will melt and the dough will not be as tender) (2).

When the mixture in the bowl has a sandy appearance (picture 2) add the yolks and a tablespoon of cold water, kneading quickly until all the ingredients are gathered into a dough. Do not knead more because the butter would melt and damage the consistency of the dough. Wrap the dough and refrigerate for an hour (if it is kept longer in the refrigerator, it will not harm them at all).

Prepare the filling

Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the American apple pie, very similar to what I did for the apple and coconut cake: peel the apples and the seed box, cut them into cubes and mix with the sugar and starch. Add the raisins and put everything on low heat, stirring constantly until the composition boils and thickens. Add cinnamon, mix well and set aside until cool.

Assembly and baking

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. The cold dough is divided into two and the first half is spread in a round sheet.

Roll the sheet on a rolling pin and roll it over a round shape that does not need to be greased.

Reach the edges of the dough to a height of 3-4 cm. then shape into the refrigerator until the second sheet is spread. After that, sprinkle a tablespoon of semolina on the base sheet and pour the filling.

The filling is covered with the second sheet. Press the edges inside and shape the ripples. Grow the dough in the middle and spread it with the yolk, then put the apple pie in the already hot oven. The secret of this dough is to put the cold dough in the hot oven. The butter will suddenly melt and create a specific sandy consistency.

Bake for about 45 minutes, until the pie is nicely browned. If it tends to burn on top, cover with a sheet of baking paper.

Allow the apple pie to cool in the form until it is barely warm. If necessary, peel off the edges of the form with a knife and then turn it over carefully on a flat plate. Immediately cover with the plate on which you want to serve and turn over with maximum caution over the plate. It is not desirable to break, God forbid! If desired, sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Authentic or not, I assure you that it was a delicious apple pie and all the diners were delighted with it.
