Lentil Shepherd’s Pie

Ingredients

1 medium onion

1 1/2 cups uncooked brown or green lentils (red lentils don’t work well)

4 cups vegetable stock

3 pounds yellow potatoes

1-12-ounce bag frozen mixed vegetables

3-4 TBS vegan butter

1 TBS olive oil

Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

Peel and dice onions.

In a large pot over medium heat, sauté onions in 1 TBS olive oil until lightly browned and caramelized (about 5 minutes).

Add lentils and stock, then stir. Bring to a low boil. Reduce heat to simmer and continue to cook until lentils are tender (about 35-40 minutes).

During the last 10 minutes of cooking, add frozen vegetables and stir. Cover and cook for the remaining 10 minutes.

While the lentils are cooking, thoroughly wash and peel potatoes (peeling is optional).

Cut potatoes in quarters and place in a large pot. Fill with water until just covered. Bring to a low boil on medium-high heat then salt, cover and cook for 20-30 minutes or until soft.

Once cooked, drain and put in mixing bowl. Mash thoroughly. Add vegan butter. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and set aside.

Preheat oven to 425°. Lightly grease a 9×13 pan and set aside.

When lentils and vegetable mix are finished, pour into prepared pan. Top with mashed potatoes, making swirls or fork marks as desired.

Place the 9×13 pan of casserole on a baking sheet to catch any overflow. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the potatoes are browned on top.

Cool briefly before serving. It will thicken as it sits. Cool completely before covering leftovers. Can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Can be reheated in microwave. Freezing is not recommended.

Whew!! I hope that makes sense-the recipe I used didn’t, so I adjusted it!!

WORKING FROM HOME, A RESOLVE?

Indefinite. Or even permanent. These are words companies are using about their employees working from home.

It’s three months into a huge, unplanned social experiment that suddenly transported the white-collar workplace from cubicles and offices to kitchens and spare bedrooms. And many employers now say the benefits of remote work outweigh the drawbacks.

Tech companies Twitter and Facebook captured headlines with announcements about permanent work from home. But the news from a 94-year-old company based in the heartland — Columbus, Ohio — may have been even more significant. Nationwide Insurance is shutting five regional officessince remote work has gone off so smoothly during the pandemic. And thousands of employees will permanently ditch their commutes for home offices.
