Ingredients

  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 can tomatoes, diced
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 2 tbsp. tomato paste
  • 1 cup dried red lentils, washed
  • 1 large carrot, diced
  • 1 celery stalk, sliced
  • ¼ cup corn
  • 1 tbsp. Worcecshire sauce
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • Sprinkle of herbs (thyme, oregano, rosemary)
  • 20g feta
  • 2 potatoes, finely sliced
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • Cooking spray
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180C.
  2. Heat a pot with olive oil and sauté the onion on low-med heat for about 10 minutes or until softened. Add carrot and celery and continue to cook on low heat. Add garlic then a splash of Worcecshire sauce with some herbs, continue cooking a few more minutes. Add a splash of water if needed.
  3. Add lentils and canned tomatoes, stock and if needed extra water, simmering until lentils have cooked, about 15-20 minutes. Stir in tomato paste and season with salt and pepper, taste and see if you need more seasoning or herbs. If mixture is a little dry add some more stock or water.
  4. Set up 6 ramekins or single serve oven dishes dividing mixture into each. Crumble a little feta onto top of each then place a couple of slices potato on top. Spray a little cooking spray over the potato (this is optional) to brown and bake in oven 20-30 minutes or until potato has cooked.
