BABY EGGPLANT AND MUSHROOM PIE

Baby Eggplant and Mushroom Pie

The perfect way to celebrate the first few days of Autumn is by making comfort meals including savory pies of some sort. This is a different and healthier take on a Shepard’s pie. Instead of using potatoes, the cauliflower mash not only gives this dish a satisfying healthier approach but doesn’t have you feeling the need to put your fork down halfway through this deliciousness of a meal!

I would like to describe this as Thanksgiving in your mouth!
