Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Irish
Serves: Serves 6-8
  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  1. In a large saucepan heat oil over medium-high heat.
  2. Add onion and garlic and sauté for 3 to 5 mins, or until translucent. Add mushrooms and sauté for 5 mins, until mushrooms are tender and reduced in size by half.
  3. Add veggie ground round, water, red wine, tomato paste, vegan Worcestershire, bouillon, mustard powder, bay leaf, pepper, and rosemary, and bring to a simmer.
  4. Cover and immediately reduce heat to medium low. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  5. Add carrots, corn, and peas to the ground round mixture, and stir until combined.
  6. Simmer for an additional 15 minutes. Add more water, 1 tbsp at a time, if mixture begins to dry out. You want this mixture to be moist, not too wet or soggy.
  7. Remove bay leaf and season with salt to taste.
  1. In a large pot bring potatoes covered in salted water to a boil and cook for 10-15 mins until fork tender.
  2. When potatoes are cooked, strain.
  3. Place potatoes back into the pot and add non-dairy milk, vegan butter and nutritional yeast, and mash until there are no lumps.
  1. Scoop the filling into an 11 by 7-inch casserole dish and spread out using a spatula.
  2. Spoon the mash over filling and spread out evenly with a clean spatula.
  3. Rough up the surface of the mashed potatoes with a fork. This will create a nice browned crust.
  4. Place the casserole dish onto a cookie sheet and bake for 25-30 mins or until the mash begins to brown.
  5. Remove casserole dish from the oven to a cooling rack and let it sit for 15 mins before slicing and serving.
  6. Serve with a side of baked beans, and gravy (optional).
Make sure you create a seal along the edges of the casserole dish with the potato mash to prevent the filling from bubbling up and over.
