Vegan Shepard’s Pie

Shepard's Pie ingredients

1 cup lentils (pink/red are preferred)

2 vegetable bullion cubes

2 cups water

1 large (or two small) carrots, diced

1 celery rib diced ( in this case I added a chopped, frozen celery rib that I had put in the freezer before it went bad, like-wise the onion added in.)

In a large skillet, mix the above ingredients and cook on medium heat, stirring frequently.

In a small bowl mix into a paste 1/2 cup water and 3 tablespoons flour. Then add 1 teaspoon each of the following: basil, oregano, rosemary. Add 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

spice/flour/water mixture

Add above mixture to cooled lentil/vegetable mixture. Simmer until it thickens, stirring constantly.  Spread evenly in a 2 quart baking dish. Top w/ mashed potatoes.

added 4 T butter, 1/2 cup milk, salt and pepper

Bake uncovered at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes.

(Obviously the mashed potatoes are not vegan, but you could make them that way by substituting soy or rice milk and vegetable oil.)
