I'm going to put it out there right now, this is one of the best dishes I have ever made. I'm quite literally in love with this yummy vegan shepherd's pie. It is such an amazing comfort food dish full of lovely healthiness! Perfect for winter meals, this warming pie includes lentils, beans and tahini for a wonderfully rich and warming flavour.
Serves 6. Time: 45-60mins
