"smoky dried chestnuts, roasted mushrooms, and fresh herbs give their rich tastes to this satisfying dish" It was just a normal December night and I was ravenous from spending a few hours writing a paper. I took a break for dinner and decided to eat at Risley Dining Hall. Cornell University Dining is known for their good food, but this was AMAZING! After eating this wonderful dish, I was in heaven, I had to ask for the recipe. The chef was very happy to give it to me. They told me that the french lentils are key to the dish as it gives a special flavor that green lentils just don't have and french lentils also hold up better in cooking. I hope you enjoy this amazing dish. A perfect dish to show company that vegan can mean gourmet. I think it may be from the book Voluptuous Vegan.
