You know those dishes that become a part of your family stories? The ones that bring you all together, with laughter and joy and most of all – taste absolutely delicious? This is one of those dishes. This vegan Shepherd’s Pie is bound to do the same to you, or you and your family.
Back in January I was introduced to the One Meal a Day for the Planet (OMD) brand. The simple and effective concept that switching to even just one plant-based meal a day for the planet would be enormously beneficial. I really loved the concept so much because finally there was, a simple and straightforward message that showed the emissions saved translating to literally miles driven, gallons of water saved and acres of forest you would save by your choices. You know when people say they can’t make a difference alone? They truly can – and OMD lets you know how. So it was really an honour when the team reached out to me to share their new book with you. As you guys know, I only only share things that align 100% with JITK. Spoiler alert: this truly did.
Last week, I made this “King’s Shepherd’s Pie” from Suzy Amis Cameron’s brand new OMD: The Simple, Plant-Based Program to Save Your Health, Save Your Waistline, and Save the Planet. In fact, I made it, tried it, then made it again for the Facebook Live that I did sharing this recipe. Well, after the Live my family wanted to take a bite. As I shared immediately with the OMD team, my dad went for a bite. Then another. Then after about a 4th forkful went for a bowl. My brother came over right after and did almost the same identical thing. Mom went straight for a plate after seeing this.
NEEDLESS to say – this vegan Shepherd’s Pie was SUCH a loved dish. The layers of flavour in the lentil vegetable filling, topped with a vegan buttery mashed potato mix and baked to a beautiful, slightly crisp perfection. When I saw what was left from our “casual taste test” I knew that this new book by OMD with 50+ recipes would immediately be a hit (and a great holiday gift!). Anyone, whether plant based or not, will truly enjoy the dishes from this book, eat and laugh and chat together, while making such a difference. It’s such a beautiful concept that I had to share it with you guys.
The OMD book has JUST been released (October 23rd) and you can purchase it now! I promise friends, there are so many more straight forward, easy and delicious recipes for you to get in this book! Plus, it’s even more than just a normal cookbook because there are several chapters explaining the health and environmental benefits all to you. The concept, the why, the how and everything in between. Be sure to check it out and enjoy!!
