Vegan Shepherd’s Pie

15.6K

You won’t miss the meat in this Vegan Shepherd’s Pie! It’s a hearty, comfort filled dish that’s much healthier than the classic version. Even the carnivore and toddler of the house enjoyed it, and there were plenty of leftovers for lunch the next day. The flavor and texture in this Shepherd’s Pie were fantastic, and I’ll definitely be this cooking well into spring. This is a great dish to make ahead, so feel free to double up on the recipe and make two pies!

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 carrots peeled and diced
  • 15 oz lentils canned, drained and rinsed

  1. I am a new Vegan (about 3 months) although I haven’t had any real cravings for meat I crave the comfort foods associated with it. So when I saw this I had to try it. It was really good. I really love your recipes because they fresh veggies and not not man made veggie protein products. Keep up the good work !

  2. This looks great, but I think there’s a word missing! Where it says “I like milk,” did you mean to say what type of milk you like to use in this recipe? Thanks!

      Woops! I meant “I like rice milk”. Thanks for letting me know.

      1. Thanks! With fall having just arrived today in the mid-Atlantic area, I am eager to try this cozy autumnal dish.

  3. Are you supposed to cook the lentils first? … Then add them to the vegetable mixture?

    1. milkfreemom Author says:

      Hi Amber, I used canned lentils. If you’re using dry, bagged lentils then you would want to cook them first. Enjoy!

  4. I made this for at least the third time tonight. It is delicious! Because I am not vegan I use homemade beef stock (and regular milk and butter.) I also use dry lentils that I first cook in beef stock while I am chopping up the veggies.

  5. I cannot wait to try this recipe! One recipe I have missed making is shepards pie and this looks absolutely awesome!! Thank you so much for this recipe!
