Many of the suggestions for increasing the seasoning are great. As for texture, standard Shepherd's Pie isn't exactly a festival of textures! It's usually a way of using leftovers! :-) Marmite/Vegemite are sold in lots of supermarkets, or is available online at Amazon. It's a great secret ingredient for vegetarians, when used in small amounts, adding a depth of flavor to stews and soups. It can also be used as a substitute for anchovy paste in recipes calling for that. This Vegetarian Shepherd's Pie filling could also be made using bulgur wheat instead of barley. The combination of bulgur (or barley) with lentils makes a great pilaf and a satisfying "meaty" filling or base for shepherd's pie, moussaka, stuffing peppers, veggie-burgers, etc.
