In June of 2017 I committed to a fully vegan diet, after being mostly vegetarian since 2012. Recently I had my first appointment with a new doctor. It was a checkup. He told me the best way to maintain weight loss is a high fat, high protein diet- which he assumed I did not, or could not, do on a vegan diet.
Everyone in my homes loves it when I make this hearty Vegan Shepherd's Pie. It is loaded with veggies and savory lentils and topped with fluffy mashed potatoes. You won’t miss the meat in this dish because it is so flavorful and satisfying! This recipe also reheats well so it’s the perfect make ahead dinner for busy nights.
This delicious dish made the perfect main course for my last Christmas dinner. Even the heavy meat eaters in my family really enjoyed this decadent portabella mushroom wellington. I admit, it's really not the healthiest meal with oil and pastry, but it's so good and perfect for Holidays or special occasions.
