When my vegetarian friends come around I fall back to this dish which is always well received. You can make the day before then store in the fridge, I find this makes it hold together much better when serving.
I'm generallynot a vegetarian follower - more like meat and potatoes!!- but having a vegan friend to dinner I tried this recipe out and was so impressed with the texture and flavour and my guest was totally delighted with the dish! This will feature on m cooklist now. One point, I will use double the lentils and add a good measure of grated tasty cheese to the spuds next time. thanks for the great dish! - 27 Apr 2012
Awesome recipe - I need to watch sodium so I added garlic to the pie & some herbs & did my mash with unsalted butter & just pepper for seasoning - and it worked a treat. I did add a 2nd can of lentils & doubled the tomatoes to make enough filling for 2 big meals. Frozen one pie for next time - 21 Apr 2014
