Lentil Potato Bake Recipe


Makes 4 - 6 servings • Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients


  • 1 cup lentils (cooked) - you can also use tinned lentils: Rinse well
  • 5 medium potatoes, sliced
  • ½ cup grated white cheese (you can use a reduced fat cheese)
  • 3 tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 cup button mushrooms, sliced

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 190°C and grease ovenproof pan/dish
  2. Heat potatoes in the microwave for 4 minutes on high (just to soften them a bit)
  3. Lay potatoes out in the oven proof dish with slices of tomatoes in between each potato slice.
  4. Do this in layers until all your slices of tomato and potato are in the pan.
  5. Sprinkle mushrooms and onions evenly over the potato and tomatoes and then add the cheese.
  6. Lastly, add lentils over the whole mixture.
  7. Let it bake in the oven for 20 - 25 minutes, until the cheese is melted and it becomes “crispy”.
  8. Serve and enjoy!

Marna's handy tips

  • If it is served as a main meal - 2 ladles would be a portion. For a side, aim for 1 ladle
  • White cheese is generally a cleaner option as it has less colourants added to it; may be lower in sodium and fat
  • Remember to ALWAYS wash your vegetables before use
  • “Tan” your mushrooms for 10 - 15 minutes prior to use to increase the vitamin D content of the mushrooms
