British-Inspired Menu

I made a special British meal for viewing the Olympics.

The main dish was the Upside-Down Lentil Shepherd's Pie from Appetite for Reduction. The potato mixture is half cauliflower and the lentil mixture has shiitake mushrooms. I thought it was delicious although next time I'd probably still bake it all together with the potatoes on top the usual way.

I also made the scones from the Happy Herbivore cookbook - instead of blueberries I subbed cherries.

I also made this Traditional Coleslaw Recipe from Britain. Basically it is a bunch of veggies with mayonnaise. I used Trader Joe's low-fat non-dairy mayo. I also included some non-alcoholic beer and some peaches and raspberries.
