About this recipe: A super-hearty vegetarian dish, that is packed full of protein. Lentils are simmered with carrots, celery, passata and spices. Serve with rice, a jacket potato or corn bread. It's the perfect dish to keep you warm during the winter. To make this dish vegan, simply use 2 tablespoons oil and omit the butter.
This was delicious and all the more so for being ultra healthy. We had it with rice, but it would be perfect with a jacket potato. I used 2 litres of veg stock instead of water which I would recommend as the outcome was very flavoursome. - 20 Feb 2012
. Made this last night, really tasty and served with new potatoes, I added a handful of fresh coriander at the end. Really easy to make and I even put some in the freezer! - 29 Aug 2012
I made some changes to this recipe, but I loved the end result. I omitted the oil and butter. I used about 1 1/2 cups of onions and 3 minced garlic cloves. I used 1/2 lb. of lentils and 1/2 lb. of lean ground turkey, and I used diced tomatoes instead of crushed. I didn't adjust the spices at all, but it could have used a little more heat. I will make my version again. It was really yummy, and weight watchers- friendly, too. - 18 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
