"A delicious meat-free take on a shepherd's pie from VegNews. We really enjoy this - nice and filling with plenty of flavor. I have successfully subbed in lentils for the veggie crumbles before - I just prepare 3/4 cup dried lentils according to package directions and proceed from there with the recipe."

"I made this with the lentil option, and absolutely loved it! I even did it without any added oil and it didn't lack any flavor at all. In fact, just the opposite -- it was full of hearty, deliciousness! So easy to make, this one is a keeper!"
"Really really good! I loved the flavor of the thyme in this. I used the veggie crumbles (TVP) and replaced the carrot with mushrooms since my hubby hates them, then I added a top layer of shredded cheddar cheese, like my grandma used to. And it came out delicious! Hubby loved it, and we ate a bunch, even still we have leftovers! Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT8."
"Loved it. Very good savory flavor with great gravy. The lentils add great texture and flavor too."
"This turned out great! Hubby really liked it. I used TVP and added some mushrooms and had to use soy sauce and dried thyme and just halved the amount. I used less soy sauce to cut back on the sodium. Loved the gravy! Looking forward to trying the lentil option.Thanks for posting the recipe."
"We made this tasty Shepherd's Pie for dinner last night and enjoyed it. It takes awhile to make, but it is not difficult and is very yummy. I used Morningstar brand veggie crumbles, and like another reviewer, spread a heavy handed layer of shredded cheddar cheese on top of the layer of potatoes and then baked. I recommend doing this, as it really made the dish! Great comfort food! Thanks for posting. Made for April 2013 Veggie Swap."
"I made this using lentils and substituting frozen mixed vegetables for the carrots and peas. I'm trying to cut down the use of oils in cooking so I 'fried' the onions in a bit of water and didn't drizzle any on the mashed potatoes. DD and I loved this. I made DH another shepherd's pie using meat. He accidentally took a second helping of the vegetarian version and didn't notice that it had no meat, lol."
"Yum! Great for the cool October nights we're having! I used fresh thyme, oregano, and chives from the garden. Thanks! Made for our VIP of the month in Vegetarian swap-October 2012."
