Hey Food Tubers, I'm Tim Shieff. Athlete, world free running champion and also a vegan.
So my mates here at Food Tube have come up with a vegan friendly shepherds pie. It's
hearty, it's healthy and you definitely don't have to be a vegan to enjoy this.
First thing you want, sweet potatoes. They are one of the biggest staples of my diet.
You want to put oil on your sweet potatoes, sprinkle some salt on there really bring the
flavour out and of course, the pepper. Spread the oil around. Then they go in the oven 180
degrees, for 35-40 minutes until they're soft. Now, I want to make the base. Large pan, medium
heat, drizzle in the oil. I use flax oil, slightly healthier for you than regular oil.
First things first for the base, celery. Right, celery's chopped, I've got to sweat it into
the large pan. Next two carrots. Nice to mix the colours up then you know you're getting
a range of vitamins and nutrients. Eat the rainbow and you'll get everything you need!
Carrots done, in they go. Two onions. My hand is cramping up. I've not got the stamina in
my hand yet, I can do all the back flips in the world but it doesn't mean I can chop vegetables
for more than ten minutes. Onion done. Sweating it out with the other
vegetables. Don't touch, I shouldn't have done that!
Make a space for the garlic so that it gets in there and cooks straight away. You can
leave the skin on it you don't need to peel it.
One more. Right. Onto, the rosemary. Going against the grain, peel them. Rosemary
onto the knife and then drop that in with the garlic.
Lastly for the base, coriander seeds. You want about a tablespoon into the grinder,
by hand, get a work out while you're preparing dinner. Earn your food. I think that's good.
Pour that in. Smells so good already. Now you leave it to sweat for about ten minutes.
Whilst those vegetables are sweating away. You want to cut up your mushrooms.
450 grams. I wanted to put in a whole kilo but they told me they're wouldn't be much
room for anything else. Come on, that's worth a laugh or like. I'm
not a comedian. I'm a free runner. 450 grams, beautiful white chestnut mushrooms.
I think Mushrooms are one of the most underrated, healthy vegetables.
Onto the sun dried tomatoes. You want four incredibly delicious really brings out the
flavour in everything else around it. I went vegan a year ago, I just wanted to try it.
I felt results within one or two days. I've had amounts of new energy I haven't felt since
I was ten years old. My joints feel a lot stronger I feel a lot healthier.
100 grams of vegetable stock of course. Now you leave that to cook down for ten more
minutes. So now that's been cooked down for ten minutes,
you want to thicken it out with some lentils, this is instead of your meat and now add some
flageolet beans. That's really thickened it up, given it some weight so you don't feel
like you're missing anything ion the meal. Now everything's done but the topping we're
going to get the sweet potato out the oven and mash it up.
Ohh, look at that! Keep the skin in there, good nutrients, good crunch within it. Now
that' mashed put it down. I'm going to ladle it out now, bring it a
little closer. We're going to get that sweet potato mash on top. That is looking great.
Now we're going to add some breadcrumbs and some rosemary. As much breadcrumbs as you
like, give it a final topping crunch. If you use gluten free vegetable stock as well then
this whole recipe up to the bread is gluten free.
Pop it under the grill for five minutes so it crisps up nicely. Just to finish it off.
There we have it. Now the best part. The tasting . Serves about 6 people. Look at every layer
of that. Of deliciousness. It hits every spot of your tongue. Crispy
top then you've give the soft orange sweet potato underneath. It's unbelievably good.
