Lentil Sweet Potato Shepherd’s Pie (Thanksgiving)

This Vegetarian Shepherd Pie is most likely the most healthy and soothing meatless food ever. The scented lentils are covered with a layer of mashed sweet potatoes and decorated with fresh thyme. This post was submitted to you by Lentil Canada as part of their #LoveLentil campaign.
For a cool Thanksgiving moment. Well. Maybe just one more piece of pie. But then I really finished. And ready for salad.

Lentil Sweet Potato Shepherd’s Pie (Thanksgiving)


  • 2 teaspoons of fresh thyme chopped, plus more for garnishes
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 cup of vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup of milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 small diced onion
  • 3 sweet potatoes baked and slightly cold
  • 2 carrots diced
  • 1 clove of minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 cup of cooked lentils
  • 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce or soy sauce for vegetarian / vegan choices
  • 1 1/2 cups of spinach
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Separate sweet potato meat from the skin and place it in a medium-sized bowl. Discard the skin. Mash sweet potatoes with butter, milk and salt (I use an immersion blender to ensure smoothness). Put aside.
  2. Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and carrots, then cook until the onions are transparent for about 5-7 minutes. Add minced garlic and cook briefly.
  3. Add the lentils, broth and cooked Worcester sauce to the pan and bring to a boil. Add spinach, thyme, bay leaves, salt and pepper and simmer until the broth is absorbed. Remove bay leaves.
  4. Transfer the lentil mixture to 4 individual ramekin or pans and spread the sweet potato mixture on top. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Garnish with fresh thyme leaves if desired.
