tempeh pot pie

I accomplished a major goal this past week, I managed to completely fill my dutch oven with food.  I’ve made recipes that I thought would be huge but only filled the dish half way. This time, it was overflowing. I made a double batch of the tempeh shepherdess pie from Veganomicon. I knew it would be a lot, but the 6 pounds of potatoes really took it over the top.

It lasted us about two days, shared between Shawn, his brother and myself for lunch and dinner. It was hearty and filling and satisfying. The recipe was filled with good stuff but I think next time I’d like the seasonings to be a little more intense.

With cooler weather coming (hopefully soon) I hope to make more casseroles. I loved the corn in this, and would maybe like to try something spicier, maybe with chipotle peppers. Yeah, that sounds good.

    We must be on the same wavelength, I was in the middle of making a tempeh pot pie tonight when I checked your blog 🙂 I used a recipe from the Voluptuous Vegan, I absolutely love that cookbook.
    Also, thanks so much for the sweet surprise in the mail!!

    I love my vegan version of shepherd’s pie, using the Gardein Beefless Tips and Daiya cheese. It’s very, very yummy (if I do say so myself – and I do).
