Lentil and Veg Mini Shepherd’s Pie

A classic comforting meal for the couple of chilly months ahead. It's very hearty and keeps you full for long. Serve with a boatload of boiled peas.

Lentil and Veg Mini Shepherd's Pie

This Recipe is :

Dairy FreeVegan


  • 4 medium carrots
  • 1/2 red onion
  • finely chopped 2 large potatoes, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 3/4 cups vegetable stock
  • 1/4 cups puy lentils
  • 2 tbsp. of vegan margarine
  • 1/2 leek


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 356ºF/ 180ºC.
  2. Bring vegetable stock to the boil in a large saucepan.
  3. Finely chop all vegetables and simmer in the vegetable stock for 15 minutes until soft. The stock should have been absorbed by the vegetables after this time.
  4. Cook the lentils separately for 25 minutes (or according to package instructions).
  5. Boil the potatoes for 20 minutes until soft, then mash (either by hand of with a food processor).
  6. Add a little bit of vegan margarine to make them buttery if you wish.  Butter the ovenproof pie dish(es).
  7. Combine all the vegetables and lentils and spoon them into the bottom of the dish(es).
  8. Cover with the mash and bake in the oven for 20 minutes (slightly longer if you are making one large pie).




After turning vegan, I discovered a particular talent for baking delicious cruelty-free cakes and cookies. It was then that my friends named me ‘The Vegan Cookie Fairy’ and my blog was born. I find happiness in preparing and eating food that is good for my body and soul — but cats and yoga help, too.

Is the recipe correct? ".4 cups" of lentils seems very strange, and 4 cups of lentils is a lot.
