A delicious vegetarian Shepherds Pie with a few short-cut options. ;)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly oil a 3-4 quart casserole dish
Heat oil over medium in a large saucepan. Add garlic and onions and a couple pinches of salt. Stir to compbine -- until onions are soft. About 3-4 minutes
Add the vegetables, cooking until soft. (Depending on which veggies you use, some take longer to cook through.) Add any frozen veggies when raw vegetables are starting to soften.
Add cooked lentils, and stir in potato starch until combined. Add red wine, broth, thyme and rosemary. Stir until combined.
Spoon the filling into the prepared casserole dish and spread out evenly
Use a spoon to gently spread the mashed potatoes across the top of the filling in an even layer. (My family likes it thick. :))
Top with paprika and extra thyme or rosemary if you like. Bake for 25-20 minutes, then switch oven to broil and broil for 3-5 more minutes, until bubbling around the edges. Watch closely to avoid burning.
