Vegan shepherds pie and benefits of lentils.🌱

Today I made a puy lentil vegan shepherds pie. Along with the lentils it had onion, garlic, carrots, sweet potato, leeks, passatta, mushrooms and miso. I topped it with a mustard mash. I think this is great comfort food on a cold January evening.

(Brown, green, yellow, red or black β€” lentils are low in calories, rich in iron and folate and an excellent source of protein. They pack health-promoting polyphenols and may reduce several heart disease risk factors)

Gluten free, low in fat and high in protein, what is there not to love about lentils. Here are some recipes for some lentil inspiration.

When I first went vegetarian, 40 odd years ago I considered lentils the poor brother of legumes. How wrong I was.

It's my 66th birthday today, if I can get some lentils inside me that will be a perfect treat.

Happy birthday Andy. I hope you enjoy your special day! 🎈 🎈

Yes, because they were cheap they were seen as poor mans food weren’t they. Well my favourite way to eat lentils is a dhal with spices and turmeric so maybe you could fit that into your birthday feast.πŸ˜‹

Have a happy and peaceful day. Ali πŸŒ±πŸ™‚
