Meatless Monday with Vegan and Gluten-Free Smoky Shepherd’s Pie Quesadilla

Welcome (back) to the Miratel blog for another edition of our Meatless Monday vegan recipe share. Miratel took the Meatless Monday pledge to support reducing meat consumption 15% by eliminating it one day per week to preserve the health of our planet. We consider our support of this great movement part of our CSR business strategies as it spreads awareness of the impact of our food choices on our environment.

Shepherd’s Pie is a sort of casserole with a layer of cooked meat (traditionally lamb or mutton) and a few vegetables topped with mashed potatoes and baked in the oven until browned. This hearty meal comes to us from England and is the perfect colder weather food fare. Our recipe today is a twist on this delicious dish by making it vegan and putting it all between two tortillas – fusion at its best. This innovative and tasty recipe comes courtesy of Margaux Mouton of Marfig’s Munchie’s via One Green Planet. If you haven’t checked out either website yet, head on over now for a read – I’m sure you’ll love them.

INGREDIENTS (serves 2-4)

FOR THE SWEET POTATO FILLING:

  • 2 cups peeled, sliced and steamed sweet potatovegan-sheppards-pie-quesadilla
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 2 garlic cloves, roasted (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • Melty vegan cheese (optional)

FOR THE SMOKY LENTIL HUMMUS:

  • 1 cup cooked brown lentils
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • Big grinds of black pepper
  • 1-2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Cumin, to taste

FOR THE REST:

  1. 2 cups steamed mixed vegetables
  2. 2 large tortilla wraps or toasted bread (gluten-free if desired)

PREPARATION

  1. In a high-speed blender or food processor, blend your sweet potato spread ingredients until smooth, adding more or less spices to taste.
  2. Clean our your blender/food processor and blend all hummus ingredients together.
  3. Preheat the pan to medium heat with non-stick spray or a touch of coconut oil.
  4. Toast your tortilla wraps lightly on each side to just heat them up.
  5. Remove from pan onto plate whilst you assemble and heat up the next tortilla.
  6. Spread the sweet potato blend on one-half of the wrap, leaving a cm or so along the edges so it doesn’t spill out.
  7. Scoop half your vegetables onto the sweet potato spread and then smear some lentil hummus on the other half of the wrap.
  8. Fold in half and press down so the ends are covered, then place back onto your plan and fry for a few minutes a side until browned and slightly crispy.
  9. Slice and serve warm with tomato sauce, vegan mayonnaise, or a drizzle of tahini.
