Vegan Sweet Potato Shepard’s Pie Recipe

It’s cold outside. Flu season is here and it is time for some good comfort food.  Who grew up eating Shepard’s Pie?  Well, it is one thing that had to give up since becoming Vegetarian… until now.  I have recreated this classic comfort food and made it healthy and Vegan!  Substitute the traditional beef with Seitan and the full fat potatoes with spiced up sweet potatoes and you got a hearty and nutritious meal.
