Lentil Shepard's Pie

Lentil Shepard's Pie:

Serves (4-6)

Ingredients:

3 Large Kumara (for top of the pie) 

2 x Onion

2 X Carrots

2 x Cans of lentils

Herbs (thyme, rosemary..)

2 X chopped Tomato

1/3 Cup of Water

2 Tbsp Tomato Paste

Crumble in a cube of stock

Grated Cheese

Optional: spinach leaves

*I personally don't add salt but feel free to do this

**For extra Vege you could add in a Petite Eats pouch to the mixture! 

 

Method:

Prep Kumara; peel and chop into piece, boil until soft. Once cooked, add a knob of butter, mash and set aside. 

 

While the kumara is cooking;

  • Finely chop onions and carrots and sauté in a large pan with a bit of oil for about 5-6mins until soft. 
  • Add tomato paste and chopped herbs, cook for a further 3 mins
  • Add lentils, tomatoes, water, crumbled stock and simmer for 15mins until carrots are nice and soft and it has reduced. 
  • Add spinach leaves
  • Put into a large oven dish
  • Layer Kumara Mash on top
  • Sprinkle Cheese and Grill in the oven for 8mins or until the cheese is melted. 

This is a fab meal to have portioned in the freezer. 

 

Enjoy xx
