Meatless Monday with Vegan Lentil Shepherd’s Pie

Hello and welcome (back) to another delicious edition of our vegan Meatless Monday recipe share. Miratel supports Meatless Monday as it encourages eliminating meat from your diet one day per week to preserve the health of our planet (and ourselves!). We consider our support of this great movement part of our CSR business strategies as it spreads awareness of the impact of our food choices on our environment.

During the holiday season, you might be looking for recipes that can do double duty. Meaning they would be sophisticated enough for company, yet perfect for a family meal. That’s why tonight we’re making vegan lentil shepherd’s pie that is sure to please. This recipe comes by way of Pure Ella.

Ingredients:

  • meatless-monday-lentil-shepherds-pie1 onion
  • 2 carrots
  • 1/2 cup sweet peas (frozen are fine)
  • 1 stalk of celery (optional)
  • 1 can of organic corn
  • 1 large can of lentils (or 1 cup dried lentils, cooked)
  • 5-7 large yukon gold potatoes
  • 1/4 cup rice milk
  • sea salt and pepper to taste
  • pinch of cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried paprika
  • oil for cooking

Directions:

  1. In a large pot, cook the peeled potatoes in salted water. In a large pan, saute the chopped onions, carrots, celery – cook until golden, add the frozen peas and lentils and cover to cook for a few minutes. Add a bit of water if these veggies start to stick to the bottom of the pan. Add in the corn and season with cumin and thyme, salt and pepper.
  2. Keep covered, turn down the heat to low.
  3. Your potatoes should be boiled by now, drain them leaving some of the water near the bottom, mash them with the rice milk until a puree forms. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
  4. In an oven -safe dish, place in the whole mix of vegetables with lentils into the bottom of the pan and spread out evenly. Add the mashed potatoes on top and smooth out over top with the back of the spoon. Sprinkle the top with dried paprika, and poke through with a fork to make vents in the mashed potatoes.
  5. Bake at 350 F for 20-30 minutes. Let it set for 10 minutes before serving, but serve while still hot. Enjoy your delicious healthy Vegan comfort-food.

This vegan lentil shepherd’s pie will serve two people and can easily be expanded to feed a crowd. Serve with with streamed broccoli and a leafy, green salad.
