vegan mofo: upside-down upside-down lentil shepard’s pie

October 13, 2011 at 6:27 am 6 comments

So, my meal planner told me to make a baked or roasted European lentil dish with bread. That could have meant bread on the side of whatever lentil dish I made, but instead I decided to try the Upside-Down Lentil Shepherd’s pie from Appetite for Reduction. Except, I wanted to make that recipe upside-down. So it turned into a more traditional shepherd’s pie, with caulipots (a mixture of mashed cauliflower and potato) on top, and the tasty lentil stew on the bottom. I went about the recipes pretty much normally, except I used a whole cauliflower instead of a half, two zucchinis instead of one, transferred the lentils, then caulipots to a casserole dish and broiled until browned and crispish. For your viewing pleasure, here are the before and after serving pictures:

Can I get a “YUM, YUM?” You know, like “WHUT, WHUT” since I’m such a food gangsta, yo. Riiiight.

    YUM YUM indeed! An upside-down upside-down dish – I love it! And I’ve still got to try this recipe. So many cookbooks, so little time…
