Samosa Shepherd's Pie Recipe {Vegan}

Day 174.

This week we didn't have a lot of leftovers. The Stone Fruit Empanadas went so fast I wish I'd made more. The Chicken Green Bean Casserole started a few fights among the kids and their father over who could eat the leftovers. The Samosas were so delicious and I originally made enough filling to make another batch later. But I decided I'd use the filling for our leftover recipe instead. Samosa Shepherd's Pie, anyone? Yum.

Samosa Shepherd's Pie
Ingredients
1 cup Ground beef substitute
1 cup Samosa Filling

Directions
Preheat oven to 400. 
Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to scoop a 1/4 cup ground beef into each of four ramekins. Top with 1/4 cup samosa filling. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Set oven to broil and bake for an additional 3-5 minutes until potatoes are golden brown.

The Results
This is pretty good. But, I think them in samosa-form better. I've never been terribly fond of shepherd's pie in general. I thought this might make me love it. It didn't.

Project Food Budget:
Spent $80 at the wholesale club this week, about $5 over budget for the week, but we also bought 25 pounds worth of flour. So, I think we're doing fine. Still a tad under our $300 monthly budget with a week to go. We should be able to make it.

Goal: $75/$300
Actual: $80/$271
