We added a packet of Boca burger crumbles to add the meaty taste to the Shepards Pie. We really liked the taste of this recipe.

All the tastes were amazing, mine came out a little dry though. I also changed the mash mix to cauliflower and sweet potato. I think next time I might add a tomato puree to the vegie mix and some chilli powder. Otherwise a great filling meal!
