Southwestern Shepherd’s Pie

southwestern_shepards_pie

Welcome to May’s installment of the Secret Recipe Club  and what I hope is the start of a lot of new blog posts.  I wound up taking the last month off in order to deal with our kitchen renovation and a fantastic little stomach bug.  Now I’m back – with an awesome new kitchen that can’t wait to be used!  Today’s recipes is one of the first I did in the new kitchen, and was a great way to “break it in” since it required the stovetop as well as the oven.  The interesting part is that the recipe I wound up using from BCmom’s kitchen was not one on my original list.  My first plan was to make her delicious sounding Sweet Potato and Chickpea soup but then the weather decided to warm up, so I needed a new plan.  It was in my second search that I saw her Southwestern Shepherd’s Pie.   I had to make a few changes in order to make it vegetarian, essentially dropping the meat and doubling the vegetables!

There are more ingredients, and steps, to this than most of my recipes but it still comes together rather quickly.  I served this with some avocado,  a dollop of sour cream, and some tortilla chips in order to ensure every last drop was enjoyed.  Another fantastic dish thanks to the SRC!

  1. I suppose soup can be good in warm weather, too, but I’m like you and tend to save it for cooler weather. I hope you get a chance to try the soup when the weather cools down, because it is amazing. At least I think so.

    This shepherd’s pie is pretty good, too. Yours looks great. Who needs meat when you have all those awesome veggies? I doubt I could convince my husband of that, though.

  2. I love the idea of mashing sweet potatoes with sour cream. Don’t know why I haven’t thought of it before – after all, white potatoes and sour cream is a staple, especially when making twice-baked potatoes.
