Vegetarian Shepard's Pie for two very hungry bikers, who by the way did close to 140 miles that day.
I'm so proud of them. And impressed. I can't even fathom that.
Chop into equal(ish) pieces and sauté in 1 tbs of butter:
1 large turnip
2 large carrots
2 cups corn
1/2 large onion
2 cups brocoli
Stir in 1Tbs Sage, and sprinkle of salt, pepper and fennel with 2/3 cup milk and 1/2 cup flour. Mix well.
Cook until tender.
Meanwhile make about 4 cups mashed potatoes (from scratch or instant or whatever....I won't judge!)
In a 9x11 pan spread vegetable layer first and then cover with mashed potatoes. Sprinkle cheese of your choosing across top (I used asiago). Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 20 min and then under the broiler for 10 minutes.
Even my "meat and potatoes" husband loved it.
The guys left around 9 this morning headed to the next stop. It was so great to get a little time with them on their tightly managed schedule, but I'm always sad to see my notsolittle brother go.
