Upside-down Lentil Shepherd's Pie from Appetite for Reduction
I bought Appetite for Reduction along with way too many other books at Borders for their going out of business sale. I'm not a huge fan of chain bookstores, but the only local bookstores we have left in town are used books (I spend way to much money there too). It is sad that Borders couldn't make it after the chains put the "mom and pop" stores out of business. Sigh. Anyway, Upside-down Lentil Shepherd's Pie caught my eye last night since I haven't soaked or cooked any beans. I served it over brown rice instead of making the Caulipots and it was very satisfying. I didn't have zucchini so I added more peas, carrots, and mushrooms (used some from the Market at the Square not shiitake, can't remember what type). This will quickly become a staple and I can't wait to try more recipes from Isa's latest masterpiece.
