  3. […] The Vegan Zombie is a webisode cooking series. John is trying to survive a Zombie Apocalypse and is not about to give up his Vegan ethics. In order to do this he often finds himself in abandoned homes and using what ingredients he can find to fashion a quick meal, while staving off zombie attacks. John posts the ingredients under each post, so head over to his site if you need the ingredients for the Shepard Pie. […]

    Thank you for this recipe. It’s delicious! I used Yves ground round instead of seitan. I added peas too – I understand ingredients are hard to come by in a zombie apocalypse, but what’s a shepherd’s pie without peas?

    I need soy-free gluten-free corn-free ideas, particularly breakfast to help me win my coworkers over to the vegan side. My question is whether zombies can detect caffeine or are vegans who drink coffee just plain toxic to anything that might try to eat them?
