Vegan Shepherds Pie | Постен овчарски пай | Veganer Schäfer Pie

Shepherd’s pie is a popular traditional dish in England and Scotland. It’s mostly prepared with mashed potatoes, leftovers of roasted beef, veal or lamb meat and vegetables but often is cooked also with minced meat.

The variations regarding vegetables are different and depend on the housewife’s taste. I decided to make an absolutely vegan variation of this well known English meal… it’s done easily, takes about an hour but it’s very delicious…

I think that this recipe with lentils is very suitable for more special occasions, if we want to surprise our guests with vegan meal or to cook something a bit different for a vegan Christmas Eve

Instructions
  1. Peel the potatoes and boil them until they soften.
  2. Peel and cut the onion and the garlic, cut the carrot and the pepper.
  3. In a deep saucepan warm up some olive oil. Steam the vegetables until they soften. Add the lentils and pour the vegetable stock. Add marjoram or thyme and a little rosemary. Let the lentils boil until soft, it usually takes 25-30 minutes.
  4. 5-10 minutes before the lentils are completely boiled add the frozen peas and let it cook until the lentil is fully boiled. If needed, add more water.
  5. In the mean time pour out the water from the boiled potatoes, add the coconut butter and the nut (oat) milk and mash the potatoes. You can use potato press but a fork can be used as well. Add some salt and a pinch of nutmeg.
  6. Put the boiled lentils in a fireproof cookware and flatten it well, on the top put the mashed potatoes and flatten this layer as well. You can create an interesting effect on top of the mashed potatoes by drawing wavy lines with the fork.
  7. Put it in the oven from 20-25 minutes at 200 degrees until the meal obtains a nice golden color.
