My favorite vegan slow cooker recipe, “Vegan Topless Shepherd’s Pie” and since cooler weather is rapidly approaching, I thought this would be perfect for Fall. The credit for this recipe goes of course goes ALL to Robin Robertson, prolific writer and author of some of THE best Vegan and Vegetarian Recipe Books known to man. If you’re looking for great Vegan recipes, there are 200 in this cookbook! Her recipes are amazing and the way she uses spice is tasty! This recipe comes from her book “Fresh From the Vegan Slow Cooker” I don’t know Robin personally, but I know this cookbook well.
