Belongs to BeSu Vegan Shepard's Pie 

Since leftover mashed potatoes are often the inspiration for making a Shepherd’s Pie, I thought that the ultimate version should feature filling ingredients that are readily available and easy to use — hence the use of veggie burgers. Simply thaw them long enough so that you can chop them and they work like a charm, adding great taste and texture, enhanced by the ground walnuts. If you prefer, chopped seitan or tempeh may be used instead of the veggie burgers, just be sure to sauté them first in a little olive oil. Use the extra-rich Mashed Potatoes and Company on page 000, or your favorite mashed potato recipe.

serves 4
You might need to buy:
  • cornstarch dissolved in 1 tablespoon cold water
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • minced fresh marjoram or 1/2 teaspoon dried
  • minced fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon dried
  • Basic Vegetable Stock
  • tamari soy sauce
  • tomato paste
  • olive oil
  • ground walnuts
  • mashed potatoes
  • sweet paprika

This recipe can easily be doubled. If only celery salt is available, use the same amount but omit the addition of salt in the dressing. When testing the potatoes for doneness, simply taste a piece; do not overcook the potatoes or they will become mealy and will break apart. The potatoes must be just warm, or even fully cooled, when you add the dressing. If you find the potato salad a little dry for your liking, add up to 2 tablespoons more mayonnaise.

This variation of our All-American Potato Salad was published in our cookbook The Best Make-Ahead Recipe.

You might need to buy:
  • Table salt
  • distilled white vinegar

  • minced fresh parsley leaves
  • celery seed
  • powdered mustard
  • Ground black pepper

White potatoes can be used instead of Red Bliss, but their skins lack the rosy color of Red Bliss skins. Try to get potatoes of equal size; if that’s not possible, test the larger potatoes for doneness. If only larger potatoes are available, increase the cooking time by about 10 minutes. Check for doneness with a paring knife.

Love potato pancakes but hate the tedious steps of peeling, shredding, and squeezing excess moisture from the potatoes? The Cook’s Country team discovered that frozen shredded hash-brown potatoes are a surprisingly effective shortcut. Don’t want to fry potato pancakes on the stovetop? A preheated oiled baking sheet delivers almost as much crispness, with far less mess.
