Vegetarian Shepherd's Pie


2 tablespoons olive oil
3 shallots, minced 
16 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
6 carrots, peeled and chopped (about 2 cups)
fresh herbs to taste (e.g. 1 sprig of rosemary, thyme, and a bay leaf)
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup red wine
1-2 cups veggie broth
1 teaspoon salt (more or less to taste)
2 cups frozen peas
Mashed Potatoes:
6 Yukon gold potatoes (about 2 pounds)
1/2 cup full fat Greek yogurt
1/4 cup butter or olive oil
salt to taste


1) Make the mashed potatoes: Peel the potatoes. Boil them until fork tender. Drain, mash, and mix in yogurt and butter. Season to taste.

2) Make the veggies: In a large oven-safe pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add shallots and sauté until fragrant. Add mushrooms, carrots, and whole herbs. Sauté until carrots are softened.

3) Make the gravy: Add tomato paste and flour to the pot and stir. Pour in the red wine and scrape all the browned bits off the bottom of the pan. Let the wine cook out for a minute or two. Season with salt. Simmer over low heat to get it thickened even further.

4) Bake: Remove the herbs. Stir in the peas, spread the mashed potatoes on top, brush the top with butter, and bake for 15 minutes at 350. Optional - broil for last few minutes to get a nice brown top.
