Traditionally Shepherds Pie offers a way to use leftover roast lamb and potatoes. This version is meatless, and made from scratch. The unusual additions of soy, cheese, and eggplant along with the generous amount of mushrooms 'age' the flavors.
1) Mash the potatoes with the yogurt and soy until smooth and creamy. Stir in the chives, parsley and pepper. Set aside.
2) Saute onion and garlic in the broth until tender in a large skillet. Add celery, mushroom, and eggplant. Cover and cook ntil eggplant is tender (10 or so mins). Add bell pepper and the peas. Cook 5 minutes more.
3) Meanwhile, preheat over to 350F / 175C. Spray a 2-½ qt casserole dish.
4) Remove the skillet from heat. Toss in cheese, the herbs, and the vinegar. Pour into the sprayed casserole. Cover with mashed potatoes. Bake 20 minutes.
