Budget-friendly lentil Shepherd’s Pie

This is a great vegetarian dish, inspired by a classic Shepherd’s Pie, with lentils taking the place of meat.

Using tinned legumes (like lentils, chickpeas, or kidney beans) ensures meals are still very satisfying without meat. They are a budget friendly way to add protein to your diet.

This recipe can be prepared in single serves, so you can make a few and freeze for those busy nights when you don’t have time to cook. Or if serving for the family, simply prepare in a large baking dish.

This recipe comes from our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, helping mums lose weight with thousands of delicious recipes for meals and snacks.
