Traditional Style Vegan Shepherd's Pie
Wonderful recipe. Took to a Christmas potluck where, by chance, the host had made a beef version. Some guests told me they preferred my vegan version. Two small changes: added a splash of vegan Worcestershire sauce. Also, since I mistakenly bought vegan sour cream rather than vegan cream cheese... used the vegan sour cream but added a little nutritional yeast. Delicious! By the way, I used Lightlife Smart Ground crumbles and Daiya cheddar-style vegan cheese.

Spinach and Bean Casserole
Very tasty. Since I didn't have a pressure cooker, nor time to soak and cook dried black-eyed peas, I used canned organic black-eyed peas. And here's a happy accident: I mistakenly used too much salt, so to counteract it, I added some cooked macaroni to the finished dish. Nice addition. By the way, the baking step at the end may not be crucial, but your call.

Vegan Mac and No Cheese
I'm a cheese lover transitioning to a vegan diet, and I loved this recipe. We added some cheddar-flavored Daiya cheese substitute in the last 10 minutes or so, and it really got pretty cheesy in taste and texture. The dish is a bit oily with all the cashews - hence the four stars instead of five - but still, this is very good as an occasional treat. Next time, we will try adding green pepper and/or tomatoes.
