Colcannon Puffs

Lentil, Mushroom & Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie — Recipes From The Kitchn.

Lentil, Mushroom & Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie — Recipes From The Kitchn

Lentils and mushrooms are more my speed, and sweet potatoes, roasted until creamy-soft, need just a little salt and pepper to be a flavorful topping. This recipe uses one unusual ingredient: steel cut oats! The dry oats, cooked and drained with the lentils, release just enough starch to bind the filling into a creamy, mushroomy mass rather than a loose scattering of lentils and vegetables. It also adds a texture somewhat like ground meat, but isn't noticeable unless you know to look for it, so your guests will have no idea their dinner includes a nutritious breakfast staple. Speaking of guests, this recipe is an ideal dinner party dish for vegan or vegetarian eaters. Lentil, Mushroom & Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie Makes 6 servings Preheat the oven to 400&degF.
