Tips for the perfect vegan shepherd’s pie
- You’ll notice that this recipe uses a splash of soy sauce. That helps add a meaty, umami flavor to the dish.
- I recommend using low sodium vegetable broth so you can control the saltiness of the final dish.
- I used Yukon Gold potatoes for the topping, but you can use russet potatoes if you prefer.
