Recipe – Donna’s Lentil Casserole

When it starts to feel autumnal my mashed potato fetish really kicks in. I make this Lentil Casserole frequently and love it with the sweet potatoes mashed on top.

Method:

Put the diced onion, carrots and celery with coconut oil into a saucepan, put the lid on and heat through over a low heat until soft.

Add the lentils heat through again. Then add the tinned chopped tomatoes, a squeeze of tomato puree, and a pinch of Himalayan pink salt, both bay leaves and leave to simmer and cook through, about ten minutes.

Meanwhile boil the sweet potato chunks for around 10-15 minutes until soft then mash with a potato masher.

Pour lentil mixture into an ovenproof dish, top with sweet potato mash and bake in the oven for 15 minutes until hot throughout. Delicious served with a side salad or green vegetables.
