Gardener's Pie

Recipe by Sazza

I got this recipe out of the guidebook supplied in the 'Quick Cleanse 15 day detox'. This is like a vegetarian shepherds pie. I usually make it without the mushrooms (don't like them) and add some zucchini or whatever is on hand. I also tend to use red lentils because they don't need to be soaked. Prep time does not include time taken for soaking the lentils.
