  • Dutch Oven



  • Prep the Potatoes: In a medium pot, cover diced potatoes and garlic with cold water and bring to a boil. Let simmer 15 minutes until potatoes are cooked all the way through. Once potatoes are fork tender, drain the potatoes and garlic and mash. Add the 1/2 cup of coconut milk, and salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  • Make the Filling: Heat the olive oil in a large Dutch oven, and sauté the onion, carrot, and celery for 10 minutes on low. Add the peas and the vegetable stock, bring to a boil. Add the lentils, 1 tablespoon of the paprika (save the other tablespoon for later), poultry seasoning, salt, and pepper. Stir and let simmer on low for 20 minutes until the vegetables are tender.
  • Top the Pie: Add coconut milk to the lentil/veggies. Stir the lentil/veggies in the Dutch oven, and top with a layer of mashed potatoes. Use a fork to make creases on the top of the potatoes and sprinkle with the remaining paprika.
  • Broil: Turn the oven’s broiler to high, and put the Dutch oven (uncovered) for 10-15 minutes, until potatoes are brown and crisp.
  • Serve hot, and refrigerate leftovers for up to 3 days.
