I found this little treasure of a recipe in a Woman's magazine, and just had to try it. Well I made it for hubby and I last night and I have to say it is yummy so I thought I would share it! I was a bit unsure about the lentils ingredient, but it really worked well. I grated the zucchini rather than chopped it and I used normal paprika rather than smoked. I also added a bit more stock and herbs for my personal taste.
