We are at my mother-in-laws for the evening. We were planning on going to my mom's for dinner tonight, but it is a blizzard out there (like it is in much of the rest of the country, I hear). So, we decided to stay in, and make dinner here instead. I made this very comforting shepard's pie, with lentils for the "meat." Topped with a simple gravy (my husband's specialty), and a side of roasted garlic brussels sprouts from VWAV.
- 1/2 pound lentils, cooked
- 7-8 potatoes, cooked and mashed with 1/4 c. soymilk and 1/4 c. "butter"
- 1 bag mixed frozen veggies (corn, beans, green beans, carrots, etc)
- one onion, diced and saute'd in olive oil
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp thyme
- 1 tsp parsley
- salt and pepper
For dessert we had sparkled ginger cookies (so good, I made another batch!), and hot peppermint cocoa made with Vitasoy chocolate peppermit soymilk. Thanks vegan_noodle for the idea, sooooo good! That little mushroom in the background is the rattle we got for Sebastian for a Christmas present, how cute is that??!!
