Recipe's preparation

    Prepare Potatoes
  1. Peel and chop potatoes and cut into chunks.  Place into the bottom tray of the varoma and set aside.

  2. Filling
  3. Chop onions into quarters and place with garlic in the mixing bowl, chop 4 seconds / speed 6.

     

    Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and cook varoma / 3 minutes / speed 2.

     

    Roughly peel and chop carrot and zucchini and celery.  Add to the Mixing bowl and blend 4 seconds / speed 6, or less if you want it chunkier.

    Cook Varoma / 3 minutes / speed 2.

     

    Add stock, soup, water, wine, lentils.  Cook Varoma / 20 minutes / speed 2.

     

    Place the varoma with the potatoes on top and let steam.

     

    Preheat Oven - 180c.

     

    Add mixed frozen vegies to the mixing bowl, replace Varoma and continue cooking on Varoma / 5 minutes / speed 2.

     

    Once finished remove the potatoes and set aside (if they need another five minutes you can keep going). 

    Remove Mixing bowl and place contents into an oven proof dish. 

  4. Topping
  5. Rinse the bowl and add the butterfly. 

     

    Add the potatoes, butter and milk.  Mix 30 seconds / speed 4.

     

    Add the potatoes to the dish with the filling, carefully in small scoops hoping it doesn't sink too much.  Rough it up with a fork.

    Add cheese if you wish.

     

    Place in oven at 180c for 20 minutes.

     

    Let stand for 10 minutes prior to serving.

Tip

Don't worry if you don't precisely weigh and measure everything, this dish will still taste good with rough amounts.  Improvise with fillings too!

Lazy Option:  Add frozen potato gems (tater tots) on the top instead of mashed potato.

    used sweet potato for the top. Highly recommended to cook the sweetpotato 30-35 mins on varoma setting speed 2.
    Otherwise, I would make it again.

    Was quite nice. Don't skip on the red wine, I think it adds so much flavour. I blended my mix a bit too much, next time would leave it more chunky. Unfortunately my 3 year old wasn't a fan. Oh well. Haha

    Submitted by shelbsmumma on 21. February 2017 - 12:06.

    This was a hit, so yummy. I added some broccoli in substitue for sweet potato as I didnt have any. My fussy vegetarian stepdaughter loved it! For me personally i think i will cut out, or reduce amount of celery, as there is celery in the stock paste too so was a little overpowering, but overall a winner, and will be a regular dinner in our house tmrc_emoticons.) Cheap and healthy!

    Delicious, thank you! This has become a regular meal in our house. I cook the potato separately in a saucepan, it seems to save time. Sweet potato in the lentil mix makes for a great texture. Delicious!!!

    Thank you very much Chubby Monkey.  It is wonderful to discover new favourites.  The only issue with this recipe for me is that it seemed quite salty.  Next time I will cut down on the veg stock.  Other than that - what a winner!

    Lentil & vegie shepherd's pie - This was really tasty! A fantastic budget-friendly vego meal! I added 50g extra lentlis and only used half a tin of water and the consistency was perfect! I used the EDC mashed potato recipe, but will try them in the Varoma next time, and sprinkled with Parmesan cheese. Thanks for sharing!

  • I am not sure what I did

    Submitted by Shaz_joe2005 on 12. June 2016 - 17:11.

    I am not sure what I did wrong here with the liquid. The recipe says 1 tin condensed tomato soup, which was a 400g tin, and then add 5.5 Tins water as well as the red wine? This brought my liquid almost to the top of the bowl. I had to drain about 2/3 out to get w good consistency. Also, when do you put the potatoes in the varoma and steam? When you are cooking the mixture for 20 mins? Sorry, I am a to the letter recipe follower and need exact instructions!  I want to make this again but need help!,!

    Submitted by PaulieW on 16. May 2016 - 13:47.

    10/10 Absolutely amazing. My family and I really enjoyed this fantastic dish.

    As I have never really found vegetarian meals that great I was just blown away with this recipe.

    It tasted like it had meat in it. I think this was due to the lentils and red wine.

    Cooked it twice in the week due to fact that I had left over meat from a roast saturday night. Even with the meat it was great.

    Definitely on my meal plan

  • I just have to say ive cooked

    Submitted by Margarita Helen on 10. April 2016 - 21:05.

    I just have to say ive cooked this again and YUMMO! This time I just used a combination of water and red wine in the 200ml together and I used a full can of corn with chopped beans for the final stage. And for the vegan option for mashed potatoes I used about 25 grams EVO and soy milk and yeast flakes. Topping for oven I used sliced tomatoes with Himalayan salt and cracked pepper. Soooo good! Thank you so much for this.

    Everyone enjoyed this meal, with most going back for seconds. Even teenager who prefers meat and doesn't love mashed potatoes! Instead of frozen veg I used cauliflower and mushrooms and then stirred a few frozen peas through the filling prior to topping with potato (also eaten by those who don't love peas - winner!)

  • Original Poster:   So I

    Submitted by chubbymonkey on 25. April 2015 - 17:25.

    Original Poster:   So I decided to make this again to check the consistency and I have realised that I didn't specifiy that the can of tomato soup was a condensed tomato soup which is a lot thicker than normal tomato soup.  So this may have made a difference and I have modified the recipe to make this clear.  I halved tthe water to 200 ml and will make that modification in the recipe too.

    Loving everyone's comments that they really like this recipe.  Thank you!  We love it too, especially for our toddler who is fussy with vegies, this is a great way to hide them and use up leftovers.
