5-Ingredient Fix Contest Entry. this is my personal vegetarian variation of the Shepherd's pie I used to cook at the London Connection when I worked there , a little sweet lady from England taught me to cook british foods. my version of the shepherd's pie can be varied by adding a veggie layer if you wish like sliced carrots =) this version they will ask for more and like it better than the original meaty unhealthy version
