This classic English staple, which is often loaded with calories, fat and sodium, gets a makeover by swapping out the ground beef for protein-rich lentils and tasty broccoli. Like all legumes, lentils are high in protein and fiber. The insoluble fiber found in lentils improves digestion, therefore helping to reduce the risk for diverticulosis, a common digestive disorder in elderly people. The soluble fiber found in lentils helps trap bile and carry it through the digestive tract. Plus, we’ve made the traditional mashed potato crust even tastier (and healthier!) by mashing savory sweet potatoes and cottage cheese along with the redskins.
