I actually wasn't as impressed with this recipe as other reviewers. I love that it incorporates so many vegetables in one dish. My household is vegetarian and I'm always looking for comfort food I can make that doesn't include meat. I thought this was a little bland and it defiantly isn't the same without meat. It was a bit bland and I didn't care for the way the potatoes rested on top. I plan to make it again with some additional spices and a layer of vegetarian meat crumbles.
This smelled so so good in the oven but when I took it out and served it, it was a big goopy mess! I would have been embarressed serving it except for the fact that the flavor was SOOOO outstanding! Like, Annacia I thought the mashed potatoes on their own were a 5star dish. I think that mine was so liquidly because I wasn't really sure what potatoes I was supposed to use. I settled on boiling but I think they were too small for this dish and there wasn't enough potato topping to soak everything up. Next time I will use Russet, cut the sauce in half or double the veggies. Thanks for the post!
Delicious cold weather comfort in a dish. I made the full recipe and got 4 dinner servings. The guys took theirs and watched the final play off game prior to the Gray Cup (football Super bowl for non-Canadians *wink*). We all enjoyed the pie, they had ham slices and biscuits with theirs. I did add minced garlic and a good shake of onion powder and I think I'll add Herbs de Provence next time. Loved the potatoes! I had never thought of adding the yogurt and it gave a lovely something special. I'll be doing that to mashed spud's again for sure. Using all fresh veggies really makes a difference. :D
