Lentil shepherd’s pie (simple quarantine dinner with pantry staples)

During quarantine cooking we have to be resourceful with pantry staples and freezer staples, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a healthy and delicious family dinner and comfort food! This dish is meatless but has a meaty flavor due to a little beef bouillon, but it can be made vegan with veggie broth to, both ways taste good! Home cooking is always healthiest and especially now safer than delivery! On Dr.Oz they were advising to consume less meat and inflammatory foods while possibly fighting the Coronavirus. Although I’m not about to become a full on vegan as I need my iron, I do like balance and whole foods. And lots of veggies.
