Vegan Shepherd's Pie with Lentils, Mushrooms & Peas

If you need comfort food or need a healthy plant-based meal for a hungry family, this vegan Shepherd's Pie is it! This warm and comforting dish is still full of deep and rich flavor, even without the meat.

Shepherd's Pie is also called cottage pie by some depending on the filling. This simple, hearty vegan version is loaded with lentils, mushrooms, peas, and bulgur.

I love adding a resistant starch like bulgur. Resistant starch fills you up faster and keeps you full longer.

The mashed potatoes are made with unsweetened, non-dairy soy milk and a little salt and pepper. You could also add a little vegan butter for a little extra richness.

Now the good news. As a result of these plant-based ingredients, you save over 20 grams of saturated fat. So why not replace your next shepherds pie with plant-based protein? It is easy and delicious. If you want to save some time, you can buy cartons of cooked lentils and prepare your mashed potatoes ahead of time. Then you can throw it all together when you get home from work.

  1. Shepherd’s pie is never called cottage pie unless the person has the name wrong. Shepherd’s pie is always made with lamb (shepherds look after sheep) cottage pie is always beef. Why not celebrate the fact it is a vegan recipe and call it vegan pie..!

    1. Hi Angie – thank you for stopping by and the info. The reason many vegan recipes are called a vegan version of an original like a vegan burger, so people understand the flavors and mouth feel of what they are going to make. Hope that helps. Happy Holidays!
