While we want to keep on eating whatever is in front of us after the Halloween candy is gone, sometimes you just need to lighten up the holidays. This #SundaySupper is all about lighter things, without lightening the taste! I chose a shepherd’s pie. This is made with mushrooms and can be made into easy portions. The dishes photographed are easily 2 servings, the dishes themselves were way too pretty to not use! I made four of these in regular sized ramekins and it was great because you still had room for veggies and salad and of course a small dessert without rolling away from the table.
Roasting the mushrooms brings out such a great flavour. I add a pat of margarine to the dish when it’s going back into the oven just so there’s no chance of drying out. You can also layer this with a layer of mushroom, a light layer of potato, mushrooms layer and then top with your potato mound. Potato mounds are the best!
- 3 lbs potatoes, peeled and quartered
- ¼ cup non-dairy milk
- 4 Tbsp margarine
- 2 Tbsp chopped chives
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 medium yellow onions, halved and sliced
- 3 medium portobello mushroom caps
- 1 1/2 lbs assorted wild mushrooms, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 Tbsp flat leaf parsley, thyme, oregano, and/or sage
- 1/4 cup margarine
- Put potatoes in pot, and cover with water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 30 minutes, or until tender. Drain. Mash with non-dairy milk and margarine until smooth. Add chives, and season with salt and pepper, if desired. Cool.
- Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in skillet over medium heat. Add onions, and cook 20 minutes, or until golden.
- Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat baking sheet with cooking spray. Chop portobellos, wild mushrooms and toss with olive oil and garlic. Roast 25 minutes, or until tender. Toss with herbs, and onions.
- Coat baking sheet and inside of 8 ramekins or 9-inch pie dish with cooking spray. Distribute the mushroom mixture to create a layer and dot with 2 tablespoons of margarine (divided). Top with potatoes, shaping each into dome. Bake 40 minutes, or until golden.
