LENTIL MUSHROOM SHEPHERD’S PIE

Captain Francois’ comment about tonight’s supper: “If this is vegetarian, you can make it for me anytime!”  Healthy, meatless and really easy to throw together, I made it stove-top in my Omnia Oven.

This next recipe is a standard… classic comfort food… and, of course, an easy fix up for the simplest of galleys… My Mom made it using up leftovers from Sunday’s roast beef dinner. I in turn made it for my kids so my recipe usually included ‘hiding’ lots of veggies in the mix. The classic version uses mainly onions, garlic and sometimes corn.
