Tideford Organics’ Vegan Shepherd’s Pie

A spin on a winter classic, this recipe by Tideford Organics combines hearty lentils with their Vegan Gravy topped with creamy mash to create a dish that the whole family can enjoy!

What You Need: 
  • 1 medium onion (diced)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 300g uncooked red lentils (rinsed + drained)
  • 500 ml vegetable stock (or 500ml hot water plus 2 vegetable stock cubes)
  • 1 pot of Tideford Organics Vegan Gravy with Red Miso
  • 1 small bunch chopped parsley
  • 100g frozen peas
  • 2 carrots (peeled + diced)
  • 1 tbsp cornflour (if needed)
  • 1.5kg floury potatoes 
  • 50g vegetable margarine
  • 75ml soya milk
  • Salt + pepper (to taste)
What You Do: 
  1. In a large saucepan, sauté onions + garlic with a pinch of salt + pepper in the olive oil until lightly browned.
  2. Add lentils, carrots, stock, gravy + parsley + stir. Simmer until lentils are tender (about 30 mins). Stir in the peas + thicken with cornflour mixed with water if needed.
  3. Meanwhile, peel the potatoes + slice any large ones in half. Place in a large pot + cover with water. Bring to a simmer, then salt, cover + cook for 20-30 minutes or until very tender.
  4. Heat the oven to 180°C / 160 °C Fan.
  5. Once the potatoes are cooked, drain + mash with vegetable margarine, soya milk, salt + pepper.
  6. Transfer the lentil mixture to a baking dish + carefully top with mashed potatoes. Smooth down with a fork.
  7. Place the dish on a baking tray + bake for 15 minutes or until the mash is lightly browned on top.


Tip: Add a dash of vegan Worcester sauce (we like Biona) to the lentil mix for a savoury boost.
