This cottage pie recipe represents one of my most triumphant cooking moments. When I presented it to my family, my kids and husband devoured it. I asked my husband what he thought was different about this meal. He said: “I don’t know. It’s just meat and potato.” Little did he know…
This meat free cottage pie recipe is the ultimate vegetarian-by-stealth meal. It looks just like the real thing, and is just as yummy, as comforting and as filling. However, without meat it is kinder to the earth, the wallet and the waistline. The trick is not to tell your family that it doesn’t have meat – they will never know!
Don’t be daunted by the way this cottage pie recipe has several steps. If you don’t want to cook dried lentils use left over ones or a tin. If you have leftover mash potato you can use that instead of cooking up a new batch.
