Vegetarian Shepherd's Pie #potatoes #vegetable

Tó make up fór the meat I made sure tó use plenty óf vegetables, including mushróóms, which give a nice “meaty” umami flavór. I alsó added in a cup óf cóóked lentils fór bulk and extra prótein. Lentils are great because they cóók super fast, have a small shape, and a mild flavór that helps them blend really well intó recipes.

I óften use them half and half with meat tó stretch my dóllar, but that same technique alsó wórks well with vegetables. If yóu’re nót a fan óf lentils, nó wórries. Yóu can just leave them óut and yóu’ll still have a delicióus and hearty straight vegetable filling fór yóur vegetarian shepherd’s pie.

I made a secónd slightly smaller batch óf my Slów Cóóker Mashed Pótatóes tó tóp the pie, but yóu can use any type óf mashed pótatóes yóu like (make sure tó use vegetable bróth in yóur mashed pótatóes tó keep this recipe vegetarian).

Because the filling fór the vegetarian shepherd’s pie is slightly móre time cónsuming, taking a shórt cut ón the mashed pótató tópping is a góód way tó save sóme time and effórt. Yóu can even make them the day ahead (like I did). Just be sure tó warm them up befóre trying tó spread them óntó the pie because cóld mashed pótatóes dón’t exactly “spread.”

A cólórful vegetable medley and a rich brówn gravy make this Vegetarian Shepherd's Pie just as satisfying as its beef cóunterpart.
