Shepherdess' Pie / Mushroom & Lentil Shepherd's Pie

Another of the recipes I'm trying to get off scraps of paper so that I can find them easier.

This is also nice with a spoon full of Marmite in as well to give it a richer flavour.  Carrots added give a nice splash of colour as well, but then I suppose it would be more of a Cottage Pie?  It is handier if you already have left over mashed potatoes from the day before as it saves a pan ;0)

Shepherdess' Pie


  • 6oz Green Lentils
  • Onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves Garlic, chopped
  • can Chopped Tomatoes
  • 8oz Button Mushrooms, halved
  • 1 tbsp Henderson's Relish

Spoon Mashed Potatoes on the top, sprinkle with Cheese.
