Veggie Lentil Pie

Top Review by Cindy Lynn

I've been trying to incorporate more foods like lentils and dry beans into our diets, which is one of the reasons I selected this recipe...the other being, limited grocery money for the next 3 weeks and I already had everything for this recipe. My problem is that it wasn't well received by my family at all, but I don't think it was the recipe's fault. Instructions were clear and it looked lovely...everyone likes all of the ingredients (well...except DD#3, who isn't partial to anything legume), but the combination didn't work for my family at all. I also don't consider it a waste, as I did learn that although we all like chili pepper and mashed potatoes, we don't like them combined. I don't feel I can fairly rate this recipe, but I do wish I had taken a photo of this 'cause it certainly was pretty! Thank you for a great learning experience Mirj and the fun I had making this regardless.
