    Someone made this for a taster at class a few weeks ago....It is sooooo yummy! Thought i'd share.

    Serves 4
    Free on green & EE (1 HeA for the cheese)

    Mushroom & Lentil loaf

    125g dried green lentils
    250g mushrooms sliced
    1 onion chopped
    2 cloves of garlic crushed
    1 egg beaten
    112g grated mature cheddar
    1 tsp of marmite
    1 tsp of dried mustard powder
    Pinch Mixed herbs
    Salt & pepper to taste


    Boil the lentils for 20ish mins & drain. Meanwhile fry the onion, mushrooms & garlic in fry light until cooked.
    Mix everything up in a bowl (save 28g of the cheese for topping) Spray a loaf tin with fry light & pour the mixture in. Sprinkle cheese on top.
    Bake in the oven for 30mins at 200.
    Can be frozen.

    I don't see why not :) You have to boil the lentils beforehand so they come out kind of sloppy anyway...hope it works out- can you come back and let us know how it turns out?

    I've used 2 different kinds of lentils (dried) for this before and they both came out yummy. I suppose if you can't find dried green you could use other dried ones?

    I expect so, not tried it though. Red split lentils are quite a bit smaller than green lentils so it might make a smaller more compact loaf? If you try it tell us what you thought :)

    Oh I love it!!!!

    Really really enjoyed it :D I thought I had green lentils but turned out they were yellow split something or others that require 8-12hrs soaking before boiling, so used some split red ones. It was more soft/gooey than the one on the picture above, but Oh It was sooooooooo good!! I love the fact it actually tastes of mushrooms, whereby loads of other recipes that have mushrooms in you lose the taste.

    Definatly one to be a regular in my house!! I had it with salad & some little roasted pots curtesy of my actifry :D

    Oooooo think i might try the red split lentils then! It really is cheesy & mushroomy mmmm

    Remember you can freeze it too, so if you are in a hurry or have no time to cook, it's there in the freezer :D just remember to cut it into slices/bits before you freeze it.
