Got this bbq for Christmas and my first go at cooking a spit. Lamb shoulder. So far so good.

Yes just from Bunnings. Can get the 240v or battery operated. I got the 240v. Works a treat.

i have a personal theory that rotisseries work best if you can enclose the bbq. a personal favourite splurge was the webber rotisserie insert.

We are away in our van at the moment. My daughter made up a feed for our dinner tonight. Early dinner tonight.

Shepherds pie made with lentils

8 Likes

My mum used to make Shepherds Pie regularly and of course I hated it. But as I get older, indeed much older, I find the dishes I used to hate as a child now appeal.
Was it edible?
Recipe would be appreciated.
PS Would it work with a mince substitute like Quorn instead of lentils? My Better Half is no fan of lentils.

I enjoyed it. I’ve also made something similar with the dried vegetable/soy protein and it was great.

I loosely followed this recipe: https://minimalistbaker.com/1-hour-vegan-shepherds-pie/

I just used what vegetables I had on hand and for the potato, I also added parsnip.

Im loving Nagi’s book. Made this the other night. Have lots of basil growing so added it to the pesto. Everything else per recipe….unsurprisingly called Green Spaghetti. It was delish.

I made a big batch of roasted capsicums to take to my parents. This is why I’m the favourite child.

I’ve tried really really really hard to like capsicum. I just don’t.

Not even as part of ratatouille? It’s so easy and so delicious and so good for you! Onions, zucchini, capsicum, eggplant, tomato and basically anything else you feel like.
