Ingredients   [ For 7 to 8 people ]    [  Preparation time : 22 minute  –  Cooking time : 35 minutes  ]

  • 1/2 cup green lentils
  • 3 medium-size sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 medium carrot, finely grated
  • 1 heaped tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1 tin organic chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup green peas ( I used frozen)
  • Salt & pepper
  • 1/4 tsp red chili flakes
  • A bunch of fresh coriander

Preparation Method

  1. Cook the lentils according to the packet instructions. Set aside. * You can also use pre-cooked lentils to save time (they sell them in little pouches in UK supermarkets). 
  2. Preheat the oven to 200C.
  3. Place diced sweet potato in a pan, season with salt & pepper, cover with water & bring to a boil.
  4. Reduce to a medium heat & cook until the potatoes are soft. When cooked, cool slightly before mashing the potatoes up. Set aside.
  5. In the meantime, fry the onions and garlic in a pan with 1 tbsp. olive oil on a low to medium heat until just softened.
  6. Add grated carrot & cook for a further 2 minutes. Stir in tomato puree, smoked paprika & chili flakes and cook for a further 2 minutes.
  7. Add cooked lentils to the pan with onions & garlic & mix well. Stir in chopped tomatoes & peas & cook on medium heat for around 5 minutes.
  8. Take the pan off the heat, add freshly chopped coriander and season with salt & pepper.
  9. Transfer the lentil mixture to an oven proof dish and spread evenly. Top with sweet potato mash (use a fork to spread the mash evenly).
  10. Bake in the oven for 10-15mins until the potato is starting to turn golden brown.

Enjoy it!!
