Here is what veg I added to mine.

Veg Ingredients

First of all, parsnip mash is super easy to make and it adds a real delicious comforting sweetness to this Vegan Pie. 

It couldn’t be easier to make either!

If you don’t like parsnips then just follow the same steps with white/sweet potatoes.

The lentil mixture contains decent protein and is also packed full of veg.

As a result, it’s the perfect way of upping yours or your kids veg consumption.

Due to combining tamari and vegan gravy granules into the lentils, the flavour is so deep and warming.

Hence it has a “meaty” texture and flavour, great for those who are vegan or trying to eat more healthy plant-based dinners.

Consequently if you’re trying out Meat Free Monday or Veganuary this recipe is a must try!

Simply add it to a large baking dish and top with that creamy vegan parsnip mash and it’s ready to bake for 30 minutes!
