    Vegetarian Lentil Shepherd’s Pie

    Image

    Although this recipe is a tad laboursome, it’s a great recipe that can supply you with meals for a number of days! With the yield provided below, I was able to make two casserole dishes of this pie and froze one. I’m cooking for one and this supplied me with lunches for two weeks! I’m probably the odd exception in that I can eat the same lunch for two weeks without getting tired of the meal, but for a family this would be great for a couple of days of meals! I also had friends taste test it and they could not believe it was a vegetarian dish…so go ahead and fool the carnivores in your life with this protein-rich dish!

There are many other professions, both regulated and unregulated, who are providing nutrition advice, advice that influences public opinion and perception.
