You won’t miss the meat in this vegan version of a Shepard’s Pie. Green lentils replace the meat and serve as a hearty filling when cooked with onion, garlic and peas. Sweet potatoes are blended in the Magic Bullet to creamy perfection, and then spread over the top of the pie to serve as a colorful crust. Bread crumbs and fresh rosemary add the final touches. Serve this hearty pie as a main dish along with a crusty piece of bread for a vegan meal.
