Great easy recipe for a week-night. I added more garlic, 4 sliced mushies & used beans (more than 1/2 cup) instead of peas. I'll make less mash next time. Thanks for sharing. :)
Thanks for a winner! Everyone in my household loved it. I used brown lentils instead of red, and that's just because that's what I had on hand. Never actually cooked with red lentils before. Think it'd definitely be worth taking this around for another spin to try it out. Thank you! I love cottage pie, and this was an amazing vegetarian substitute. I would happily interchange the two.
Thanks, this was a great meal. My husband said "very tasty" and "can we have this again?" so its a keeper:-) I used sunflower oil instead of the butter, used a little Flora Buttery and semi-skimmed milk in the mash potatoes and subed bell pepper for the peas (we had the peas as a side vegetable), didn't have any red wine so left that out. Yum Yum Yummy Yum:-)
This was TERRIFIC, TRUE! LOVE adding red wine too! Savour the flavour, you will NOT miss the meat, take it from me! Used oil spray to even lower the fat/calorie! THANKS!
Thanks for the good new recipe! An innovative way to use lentils. I used 2 garlic cloves, as me and my husband prefer more flavor. I used a bit more carrots as well. The directions don't say an oven temp to use; I used 375F/290C which is similar to other cottage pie recipes. It also took longer to cook; it's fine with less time, but more time gives the potatoes a lovely golden brown color! Also, I suggest adding some milk to the mashed potatoes, to make it more smooth, and easier to spread over the lentil mixture. Thanks for the idea!
