Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour 30 minutes
Total Time 2 hours
Servings 6



  • 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.
