This hearty, comforting dish will satisfy your carnivorous cravings and as blogger Koko Brill from Koko’s Kitchen Blog says: “it will nourish your guts without an ounce of meat in sight!” Like any good shepherd’s pie, it’s built on a protein-rich base topped with delicious mashed potatoes. It’s a classic and it’s so tasty, you’ll never miss a thing.
For the topping:
4 large baking potatoes, peeled and diced
1/2 cup (125 mL) of your favourite nut or seed milk, gently warmed
1/2 cup (125 mL) of olive oil
1/2 teaspoon (2 mL) of naturally-sourced salt
Lots of freshly ground pepper
For the filling:
2 tablespoons (30 mL) of your favourite vegetable or coconut oil
2 to 3 onions, diced
2 to 3 carrots, diced
2 to 3 celery stalks, diced
4 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 cup (60 mL) of whatever red wine you’re sipping
a 28-ounce can of diced, crushed or pureed tomatoes
a 19-ounce can of lentils
2 cups (500 mL) of fresh or frozen corn
2 cups (500 mL) of fresh or frozen peas
3 or 4 sprigs of your favourite fresh herb (sage, thyme, rosemary, oregano, or tarragon) finely minced or 1 tablespoon (30 mL) dried
#LentilTips Lentils can be a key part of a vegetarian lifestyle. Like all pulses, they’re packed with protein, fibre, and micronutrients. You don’t have to let meat be your protein middle-man, you can go straight to the source by eating lots of lentils!
