Shepards Pie

I suspect lentils would be really good in here in place of the beans. Just add 1 - 2 cups of cooked lentils in with the other vegetables.

olive oil
1 carrot, cut into coins
1 onion, chopped
1 stalk celery, sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 can red or kidney beans, drained
1 can diced tomatoes, drained (optional)
1/2 c. frozen peas
1/2 c. frozen corn
2 c. beef broth (Or vegan imitation)
1/4 c. brown gravy powder (Or flour)

3 or 4 cups prepared mashed potatoes

Sprinkle of paprika for garnish

Cheese if you like that on your pie, I don't but my husband insists it's a must

Saute celery and carrots until starting to get tender. Add onion and saute until tender. Add garlic and continue sauteing until fragrant. Add beans, tomatoes, peas, corn and beef broth. Simmer until peas and corn are cooked. Mix gravy powder and enough water to make a smooth paste. Stir into bean and vegetable mix and stir and cook until mixed and gravy is thickened.

Pour into a 9x13. Top with mashed potatoes. Sprinkle with a little paprika. Bake at 350 until potatoes are hot and stew on the bottom is bubbling. Sprinkle with cheese and return to oven to melt cheese
