Lentil Stew and Mash

This is a warm, filling stew. If you like you could add chicken but I use the big broccoli heads as the meaty base.


Serves 4-6


  • 2tbsp oil


  • 3 cartons of cooked green lentils


  • 3 carrots, diced


  • 2 onions, diced


  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed


  • 1 head of broccoli, cut into florets


  • 3tbsp cider vinegar


  • 2tbsp soy


  • 3tbsp balsamic vinegar


  • 300ml veg stock


  • 1 tin coconut milk


  • 2tsp thyme and oregano


  • 700g potatoes, boiled


  • 2tbsp olive oil


  • Seasoning


  • 1 handful chopped parsley


  1. Put the potatoes on to boil.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a pot and cook the onion, carrot and garlic until soft.
  3. Stir in broccoli, vinegar, soy, balsamic, stock, coconut milk and herbs. Simmer for 30mins.
  4. When potatoes are tender, drain, mash with the seasoning, olive oil and parsley.
  5. Serve with a spoonful of mash, making a hole in the middle and spooning the stew into the hole.
