I went out this evening to a pub (McEwans brewhouse) and had a really great vegetarian shepherd’s pie. It had a 5 bean chilli base, topped with mash and covered in cheese. I really want to try it at home, since I’m getting bored of some the recipes I’m currently using.
It was served with a side of garlic bread. I definitely would have it again, because it was really good.
My current thoughts on this are:
Bean and Chilli mix
Fry onions and add tomato paste. Add drained beans and chilli. Simmer
Cheddar cheese topping.
Completing the dish
Put the bean mixture into a small oven proof dish. Add the potato on top, then cover in cheese.
Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes or so.
I’m going to give it a go later this week.
