Yes, I know. Meatless shepherd’s pie isn’t shepherds pie BUT if I tell my mum or grandma I am making ‘shepherdess pie’ I can just picture the odd look they’ll give me. And, really, this is the pie my mum used to regularly serve for a weeknight tea. It’s got the baked beans and everything! Baked beans in shepherd’s pie seems to be relatively common among mums in England, and yet every recipe I found online neglected to add them. Perhaps I’m making some massive faux pas but… there’s beans in this!
