This recipe hails from Veganomicon by Isa Chandra Moskowitz & Terry Hope Romero. Like every other recipe in this book, it is divine. The authors’ description: “winning combo of tempeh, peas, and corn, in a zesty mushroom gravy instead of a tomato-based one, because we prefer to dream that way.” So do I. This is my favorite shepherds pie-type dish, and I’ve taken it to enough potlucks to know that everyone else loves it, too.
This recipe takes a little longer than some of the ones I’ve posted so far, but the payoff is big, both from a flavor standpoint and as far as quantity goes. The good news about that: the leftovers are fantastic. It may even be better the next day.
I’m not going to demo this recipe, because all of you should own this book. Seriously. It’s on pages 167-168. And if you don’t have the book yet, get it!!
You won’t regret adding it to your collection, where it will undoubtedly come to look like mine, with every single page dog-eared and food splattered, like a favorite cookbook should be.
