This recipe by Tideford Organics combines hearty lentils with their Vegan Gravy topped with creamy mash to create a dish that the whole family can enjoy!

 1 Onion, diced
 2 Garlic cloves, crushed
 300 g Uncooked red lentils (rinsed + drained)
 500 ml Vegetable stock
 75 ml Soya milk
 Salt and pepper to season

In a large saucepan, sauté onions + garlic with a pinch of salt + pepper in the olive oil until lightly browned.


Add lentils, carrots, stock, gravy + parsley + stir. Simmer until lentils are tender (about 30 mins). Stir in the peas + thicken with cornflour mixed with water if needed.


Meanwhile, peel the potatoes + slice any large ones in half. Place in a large pot + cover with water. Bring to a simmer, then salt, cover + cook for 20-30 minutes or until very tender.


Heat the oven to 180°C / 160 °C Fan.


Once the potatoes are cooked, drain and mash with vegetable margarine, soya milk, salt + pepper.


Transfer the lentil mixture to a baking dish and carefully top with mashed potatoes. Smooth down with a fork.


Place the dish on a baking tray and bake for 15 minutes or until the mash is lightly browned on top.

Tip: Add a dash of vegan Worcester sauce (we like Biona) to the lentil mix for a savoury boost.
