I HATED Shepherd's Pie growing up....prolly cause of the dead cow. Lentil Shepherd's Pie is amazing,however - given you like lentils, peas, carrots and mashed potatoes. Yummy Yummy!

(Pardon the lack of Pictures - I will add them to this thread tonight)

Lentil Shepherd's Pie

2 tbsp vegetable oil
3/4 cup diced onions
1 clove of garlic, minced
2 tbsp flour
1 1/3 cup veggie broth
1/4 teas. dried thyme
1/8 teas. salt
1/8 teas. pepper
2 cups cooked lentils
One 10oz package frozen peas/carrots (or whatever veggies you like - feel free to sub fresh veggies but be sure to "slightly" cook them prior to using)
2 cups mashed potatoes (homemade are obviously BEST but instant made with soymilk (PLAIN) and marg. are fine as well)

1. Preheat Oven to 350

2. In a 1 1/2 quart saucepan, heat the oil over medium high heat and saute the onions/garlic until soft (approx. 5 minutes). Add flour to make a rouge. Once flour is absorbed, add the veggie broth, thyme, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and then add the lentils and veggies. Continue cooking for an additional minute. Scoop mixture into a 9x5x3 loaf pan.

3. Pipe potatoes around pan. I do not do this. I scoop potatoes on top and then level with a spatula. If you are going for presentation, you could place mashed potatoes into a pastry bag, etc....But, if you are really going for presentation, you probably know all of this.

4. Place pan in the oven and bake for 40 minutes until mashed potatoes are a golden brown.

I think I'll make it my goal to cook this this week. I have LOTS of lentils, it's one of the few foods I can afford to buy right now!

My son enjoyed it. My daughter (the non-veg) raved about it too.

not mine. she doesn't like the texture or something. that's not to say she doesn't like potatoes. she loves them. just not mashed. doesn't matter how runny or thick. just doesn't. i'm weird like that too. i love mashed potatoes but i'm picky about food texture. very picky.

I never had it as a child but I have made a version for Thanksgiving several times. The version I make has sun dried tomatoes in the lentil mixture and I make a mushroom gravy with red wine mmm.....
Only my oldest daughter will eat it especially with the gravy. the other two only like the mash potato as long as the lentils don't touch it!
