One winter night Paul and I were craving Shepherd’s pie. I remembered the smell, taste and feeling as I took each bite but now, I had one problem, I no longer ate meat but I really wanted to have shepherd’s pie. I googled vegetable Shepherd’s pie recipes. Then browsed through recipes that sounded great but all had one or two ingredients I didn’t like.
For the base, we were searching for a meat alternative. While ensuring, we used a product high in protein, fibre and iron without the calories and affordable for our budget. Lentils were the answer to this. We got really excited and decided to make a lentil vegan pie with vegan cheese. Yummy! It took us three goes before we perfected the recipe.
One night we served the pie to family and much to our surprise; they thought it was meat! They absolutely loved it and went back for seconds.
Okay, so what does the recipe taste like? OMG! Dangerously delicious. Once you have a slice you want to have more especially if you add vegan cheese. Not to brag but the recipe is a real winner!
