INGREDIENTS
Serves 5

For the lentil mixture
25g butter
1 onion, chopped
2 carrots, diced
3 or 4 sticks of celery, chopped
2 garlic clove, crushed
100g chestnut mushroom, sliced
1 bay leaf
1 ½ tsp dried thyme
400g tin of green lentils
500ml vegetable stock
2 tbsp tomato purée

For the Mash
1kg potato
45g butter
50ml milk
25g vegetarian cheddar, grated

Method
1. Start by melting the butter in a pan, then add the onions, carrots, celery and garlic and gently fry for 15 mins until soft and golden.

2. While the onions and carrots are cooking, tip the potatoes into a pan of water, and boil for about 15 mins until tender. Drain the potatoes and mash with the butter and milk and season with salt and pepper.

3. Turn up the heat, add the mushrooms, then cook for 4 mins. Add the herbs and stir them in.
Then add the lentils and pour over the stock, don’t season with salt at this stage. Simmer for 5-7 minutes. Take off heat, then stir in the tomato purée and add your seasoning. And remove the bay leaf.

4. Put the lentil mixture in the dish that you are using, then top with mash. Scatter over the cheese. Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5, then bake for 30 mins until the topping is golden.

ARE YOU USING VEGGIE BUTTER? NO LENTILS? USE CHICK PEAS OR BEANS… PAPRIKA IS NICE TO USE… YOUR WATER YOU USED TO COOK CARROTS IN COULD BE USED FOR GRAVY… I USED VEGGIE MINCE INSTEAD OF MEAT PRODUCT… STILL LOOKS TASTY – YOUR VERSION, THAT IS… DONT USE POTATO WATER TO CREATE GRAVY AS THE STARCH HAS ADVERSE EFFECTS ON THOSE ALLERGIC TO IT OR DEIGNS TO CONSTIPATE…
