Plant-Based Lentil and Sweet Potato Shepherd’s Pie

Servings: 6 Time: 90 minutes

Shepherd’s Pie is a classic home-cooked meal that traditionally uses ground beef or lamb, but this version uses perfectly-seasoned lentils as a protein- and fiber-rich substitute. Our recipe also replaces the usual mashed potato topping with beautiful and nutritionally powerful mashed sweet potatoes. This is a great recipe for holidays, or any time you want a tasty meal that can warm your heart.

Ingredients

Method

  • Preparing the sweet potatoes:

  • Peel and chop your sweet potatoes into 1-inch pieces, then boil for 15-20 minutes or until soft enough to mash.
  • Mash sweet potatoes, adding Minor Figures Oat Milk to reach a smooth consistency, and salt to taste.
  • Preparing the lentil filling:

  • While your sweet potatoes cook, chop onions, carrots, and celery into small chunks or use a food processor. Then sauté in a large skillet over medium heat with a splash of water until softened.
  • Once veggies have softened, add your lentils to the pan, then cook for another 5 minutes.
  • Preheat your oven to 350° F.
  • Add chopped spinach, Coconut Secret Seasoning Sauce, half of your basil, and your canned tomatoes (and their liquid) to the pan and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  • Add lentil filling to a 9 x 13 baking dish or distribute evenly into individual oven-safe dishes, then spread sweet potato to cover. Bake in your preheated oven for 20 minutes or until browned to your liking.
