Vegan Shepherd's Pie

The vegetarian or vegan answer to Shepherd's Pie, "Wynelle's Pot Pie" from Sundays at Moosewood, provides a delicious alternative. A favorite family dish, DD prepared the familiar vegetarian pot pie, yet this time, totally vegan, thanks to Earth Balance Buttery Sticks and Natural Shortening.
Organic produce featured a variety of root vegetables: beet, potato, carrots, and onions. Whether stepping into summer or welcoming the autumn months, this recipe is always a crowd pleaser.

Basic Roux

2 Tblsp butter/vegan buttery sticks
2 Tblsp unbhleached white flour
1 cup milk/soy milk
1 tsp white wine or spicy brown mustard
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 cups cheddar cheese, grated (opt)

This is simply a basic white sauce or Bachamel sauce.
