    yep if you use extra virgin olive oil, you could count it as HE. I didn't have any HE's left to use though, so just synned the oil.

    It was really delicious for a meat free dish. Plus the spinach and veggies added to it, mean't I got my superfree foods

    That looks and sounds so lush!!! I'm definitely going to make this dish! I think I'll try chucking a load of fresh spinach in at the end instead of frozen though as I prefer it and it wilts down quite quickly!X

    I have made it with both fresh and frozen spinach before, and I do prefer it with fresh ;), so you use either really.

    It is a yummy and filling meat free dish.

    I forgot to add a comment at the time- OMG was this thread really as far back as January?!!! 10 months ago- I can't get over it!!! I did make it and it was really delicious! I used fresh spinach as I said I would and it worked well! And if I remember rightly I put some chilli powder in it too to give it an extra hit- I like things spicy!!XXX

    I followed the recipe, but after 35 mins the lentils still weren't cooked, so had to wait over an hour. Still it was worth it as it is delicious :) Had it for lunch instead of dinner- couldn't resist. Definately will make this again and a great way to fit in the extra veg. Thanks BritMum for another great recipe!

    It's the first one I tried and it was a hit not only with me, but with the kids, BIL and OH. Will try the salmon one another day (whenever I do a red)- sounds yummy!

    ooh only just noticed this was bumped up. I am glad you enjoyed it. I havent made it for a while, as I prefer the lentil and butternut squash curry recipe on my blog now. Is a big favorite in my house. My 4 year old loves it.
