 You may have noticed that here at Great Harvest in Tulsa, we are crazy about fall. Recently we shared a recipe for how to make deliciously fall flavored pumpkin bowls, and today we’d like to spread the fall cheer even more by offering a recipe on how to make an all vegetable Shepherd’s Pie. Surely, you can consider eating this all on its own, but it may also be a new idea for a Thanksgiving side dish. Whenever you choose to eat it, we’re sure you won’t regret it. 

What You’ll Need


2 pounds of peeled and cut sweet potatoes-cut into 2 inch chunks
1 tablespoon as well as ½ teaspoon of salt
6 tablespoons of unsalted butter
1 large, thinly sliced, onion
2 peeled and slice parsnips
2 stalks of celery-sliced to ¼ inch thick chunks
2 medium sized fennel bulbs-½ inch diced
2 cups of Brussel sprouts cut in half
2 tablespoons of chopped fresh parsley
½ teaspoon of black pepper14.5 ounce can of vegetable or chicken broth
3 cups of fresh spinach or Swiss chard
Pinch of ground nutmeg

The Plan


1. Put one tablespoon of salt and the sweet potatoes into a large pot. Add cold water, enough to cover the potatoes. Bring them to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until they are tender. This should take about 20 minutes. 
2. In a saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons of butter, over medium-low heat. 
3. Add the onion, cooking for 10 minutes. 
4. Next, add parsnips, celery, fennel, sprouts, parsley, pepper, and remaining salt. 
5. Add the broth, increase heat, and simmer until the vegetables become tender. This should take between 15 and 20 minutes. 
6. Add the spinach and stir until it wilts. 
7. Transfer the vegetables into a casserole dish. 
8. Drain the potatoes, return them to the pot, add the rest of the butter, and mash them. 
9. Place the mashed sweet potatoes to the vegetables in the casserole dish. 
10. Broil on high for approximately 5 minutes, making sure the potatoes are a golden brown.
11. Remove, sprinkle with nutmeg, and serve.
