1 can of lentils
3 tins of vegetable stock
1 tbsp of olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 tps cumin seeds

1 vegetable stock cube
1 diced red pepper
1 yellow courgette, chopped
1/2 tps of garlic powder
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
2 tps of mixed herbs
1 tin of chopped onions

Splash of Worcester sauce
2 tbsp of ketchup

6 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 leek, thinly sliced
1 diced pepper
Handful of mozzarella cheese
1 tbsp of butter

Peheat the oven to 180 degrees. Add a tin measure of lentils to a pan and add three cans of hot water, add the stock cube, garlic and cumin seeds. Bring to the boil and simmer for 45 minutes, until the lentils soften. Heat some oil in a pan and brown the onions,  peppers and courgettes cook until softened, season and stir. Next add the tinned tomatoes, a splash of Worcester sauce and the dried mixed herbs. Simmer for 25 minutes. In a third pan boil the potatoes in some salted water until they start to break apart, drain and mash in the butter, stir in the leeks, cheese and peppers and set to one side. Mix together the lentils and tomato sauce and transfer to an oven proof dish. Even out the lentils and top with mashed potato, add spoonfuls at a time so the topping doesn’t sink, even out with a fork and place in the over for 45-50 minutes until the potato is crisp and turns a golden colour. Remove from the heat and serve. This dish is also good to cook in a batch and freeze.
