Lisa Simpson (The Simpsons)

Yellow Lentil Sliders

Starters from Issue 11 – Summer 2017 – Heroines

The most evolved 8-year-old on TV: Lisa Simpson plays a mean sax, is a Buddhist, has an IQ of 159, and designed her own feminist talking doll Lisa Lionheart (her refrain: “Trust in yourself and you can achieve anything”). When Lisa wavered in her vegetarianism it was Apu at Kwik-E Mart (the hotdog she thought she cheated with turned out to be a tofu-dog) and Paul and Linda McCartney who reassured her. Our yellow sliders—Indian in flavor and lentil based (“If you play ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’ backwards, you’ll hear a recipe for a really ripping lentil soup,” Paul says)—recognize them.
