What is Shepherd’s Pie

Shepherd’s pie is traditionally made with ground lamb and the mashed potatoes are usually prepared with butter and milk or heavy cream.

Obviously those ingredients are not plant based. But my Chickpea Lentil Shepherd’s Pie is:

Instead of lamb we use chickpeas and lentils for a hearty and meaty texture. Also for the milk and butter, we go for coconut or cashew milk.

How to make Chickpea Lentil Shepherd’s Pie

Wash and peel your potatoes. Cook or steam them until they are soft. While you do this, prepare the Chickpea Lentil Bolognese as the filling:

Heat a pot with a bit of oil, or use vegetable broth to make this without oil. Add garlic, optional onion plus celery if you like.

Fry for around 4 minutes.

Add lentils, marinara, tomato paste and cook until done. You really don’t want the lentils too mushy.

When ready add chickpeas and the optional add ons like red wine and cherry tomatoes. Don’t forget to season with salt and pepper.

Now mix your cooked potatoes with coconut or cashew milk, garlic, nutritional yeast, and season with salt and pepper. Be patient and mash with a potato masher or use the food processor for a mashed texture.

Last, you will need a 10×10 inch casserole dish. Simply add the chickpea lentil mixture on the bottom of your casserole, then top with the mashed potatoes

Bake at 425°F for around 25 minutes.

What to eat with Shepherd’s Pie

I find there is absolutely no need to serve anything with it. But if you like, serve with a salad or some garlic bread as well.
