Vegetable & Lentil Pie

January 13, 2014

I’m on a vegetarian kick lately. Call it my food-fad of the week :) But I gotta say the recipes I’m finding are fab!! This is like a Shepard’s Pie, but with no meat, no potatoes, and no cheese…so actually nothing like a Shepard’s Pie at all, hehehe :) ?But it holds it own as far as taste and nutrition go! I topped mine with mashed parsnips, but you could mash up a few spuds if you’d prefer. I found the receipe in Anna Richardson’s Book “Five Rules to a Brand New You”?http://www.annarichardsonbodyblitz.co.uk/more.php.

1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 onion, peeled and sliced
2 fresh garlic cloves, minced
2 large carrots, diced
2 celery stalk, diced
2 cups crimini mushrooms, sliced
1 (14 oz) can lentils, un-drained
1 (14-oz) can diced tomatoes with herbs, un-drained
2 teaspoons tomato paste
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried Italian herbs
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 Tablespoon cornflour whisked with 1 Tablespoon cold water
3 large parsnips
2 Tablespoons butter
