Here are the key ingredients for this vegan lentil pie, available in most supermarkets.
The best part about this lentil pie is that you can use whatever vegetables you like or have!
Here is what veg I added to mine.
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!
If you fancy making a similar recipe but using aubergines then check out my Awesome Aubergine Bake recipe.
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!
As a result it comes out the oven all golden, crispy and smelling incredibly good!
Serve this up in the middle of the family table and you’ll be very popular.
