Forks High Shepherds Pie

What you need: 

2 tablespoons oil
1 onion, sliced
1 red pepper, sliced
1/2 cup fresh peas
1 zucchini, chopped
1 head broccoli, chopped
2 cups fresh spinach
6 medium-sized potatoes, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons mustard seeds
2 tablespoons mild curry powder
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1 tablespoon sweet paprika (not Hungarian sweet paprika)
2 tablespoons vegan mayonnaise
1 (15 ounce) can refried beans (kidney beans could also be used)
1 tablespoon tamari

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Fry peppers and onions in oil. Boil peas, and steam broccoli, zucchini, and spinach over the boiling peas.
2. Boil potatoes until tender, then drain and mash. Saute garlic and spices in separate pan. I like to add mustard seeds first.
3. Add mayonnaise to spices and follow this in with beans. As beans come to boil, add all vegetables and tamari.
4. Place filling in casserole dish then spread potatoes on top with fork. Bake until potatoes are brown.

This is a great recipe!  Very delicious :)  I changed it quite a bit - used corn instead of peas, and other veges I had at hand (carrots instead of spinach) and I used mashed barlotti beans instead of refried - but it still came out awesome.  I had to add some stock as the mayo alone didn't produce enough sauce. Think next time I will add a can of tinned tomatoes too.  But yeah, that means I've changed it loads - but it's great to take a good recipe and make it your own :D  Thanks for this Doug  :)>>>
