Lentil Shepherds Pie

Lentil Shepherds Pie. Lentils were something I had not even heard of (along with the term “legume”) years ago, but now they are a staple is our pantry because, not only are they a nutritious super food, cheap and delicious, they are so easy to cook and don’t require the preparation and soaking like beans. Lentils are high in fiber, protein, and iron and are great for battling some of America’s biggest health epidemics, such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, IBS, and even fatigue.

Fried Oyster Mushrooms – Vegan

This is one of our new favorites, for sure! Fried Oyster Mushrooms! We had it twice just last week! I have no doubt in my mind that it’ll blow you away too!

The breading is delicious and crunchy and just to die for!

They were daggum’ HUSHPUPPIES for that matter. Surely I was going to figure out what I was doing wrong.  Continue reading
