Shepherd’s Pie is one of our absolute favorite dishes on the homestead, and this vegan shepherd’s pie with TVP is a hearty plant based dinner idea we love!  TVP is a fantastic and versatile plant based protein, I’ll talk more about it below! This shepherd’s pie is loaded with fresh and frozen vegetables, and topped with the simplest garlic mashed potatoes. This is one of my husband’s favorite recipes, so we make it about once a month. It’s a great recipe to use up extra frozen vegetables and pantry ingredients too.  I made this version with summer vegetables from the garden, but you can use any of your favorite fresh or frozen veggies for this dish.

OK, So What Is TVP (Textured Vegetable Protein) Anyway?

TVP (Textured Vegetable Protein) are small bits of soy protein, which has a very similar texture as ground beef. Because of this, TVP is really versatile to use in place of real meat. We use TVP in soups and stews, for taco filling, and in lasagnas.   TVP is a great pantry-staple protein, and it lasts a long time. We always keep a few bags of TVP  on hand.

 Frozen Vegetable Shepherd’s Pie For the Win!

I used a few frozen veggies for this recipe instead of  fresh produce. Frozen produce is a great option for finding fresh and flavorful vegetables in the off season. By using freezer ingredients, I can stock up when they are on sale, and use them in all kinds of great dishes. It saves me a trip to the store, and I can add amazing veggies right into the recipe. Frozen vegetables are often picked at peak ripeness, so they are a much better option than canned.  Check out all my recipes that use Freezer Ingredients on The Herbeevore – great for those nights when you want dinner ready fast!

How Do I Make Shepherd’s Pie with Fake Meat?

  • In a medium pot, cover diced potatoes and garlic with cold water and bring to a boil. Let simmer 20 minutes until potatoes are cooked all the way through.
  • In a separate bowl mix the TVP, boiling water, and chili powder. Stir and allow mixture to sit for about 15 minutes.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large dutch oven, and saute the onion And zucchini for 10 minutes on low. Add the corn, peas, spinach, and the vegetable stock, bring to a boil. Add the TVP, 1 tbsp of the paprika (save the other tbsp for later), Montreal steak spice, salt, and pepper. Stir and let simmer on low.
  • Once potatoes are fork tender, drain the potatoes and garlic and mash. Add the 1/2 cup of almond milk (use more if the potatoes are too thick). Salt and Pepper it too.
  • Stir the TVP/veggies in the dutch oven, and top with a layer of mashed potatoes. Use a fork to make creases on the top of the potatoes and sprinkle with the remaining paprika.
  • Turn the oven’s broiler to high, and put the dutch oven (uncovered) for 10-15 minutes, until potatoes are brown and crisp on top. Watch the oven so it doesn’t burn.
