DIRECTIONS

  • Place lentils in a saucepan with cold water to cover. Cook over a high heat until boiling, then boil for 10 minutes.
  • In another frying pan brown the beef mince. Once browned add the onion, celery, carrot and the garlic. Cook over low heat for 5 minutes and stir in tomatoes.
  • Drain lentils and reserve 300ml (1 1/4 cups) of the cooking liquid. If not enough cooking liquid top up with hot water.
  • Add lentils to meat mixture, then dissolve the vegemite in the cooking liquid and stir into meat mixture.
  • Add bay leaf and bring mixture back to the boil, lower heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile make the topping.
  • Place potato and parsnip in a saucepan and cover with water (lightly salted if you desire).
  • Bring to the boil and cook for about 15 minutes or until tender.
  • Drain into a bowl and mash together with the yoghurt and the chives.
  • Preheat the grill (Broiler).
  • Remove bay leaf from meat mixture and divide the mixture among 4 2 cup capacity ramekins.
  • Spoon or pipe the potato/parsnip mash over the top and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
  • Place under the griller for a few minutes or until the potato topping is nicely golden.
