I’ve been vegan a couple of years now and one of my favourite meals before I went vegan was meatballs with spaghetti. I loved how the herbs in the meatballs melded with the sauce and pasta. Three parts imperfect by themselves but together sheer bliss! So I set out to recreate what I loved in a vegan meatball.
I’ve been craving the comforting texture and flavour of shepherd’s pie. One of my favourite meals before I went vegan I’ve been keen to see if I could mimic the flavour and texture using whole plant foods. This recipe came pretty close! The potato is so creamy without any butter or oil and the sauce with aduki beans and porcini mushrooms has a lovely rich flavour.
