How to make it

  • Preheat your oven to 200 C (350F).
  • Place re-hydrated lentils in separate pot and boil until cooked but still firm (red lentils will completely break up if boiled for longer).
  • Place potatoes in a separate pot and boil until cooked and ready for mashing.
  • Heat oil in a separate large pan over medium heat and sauté onions for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add celery, carrot, and garlic and cook for 2 minutes more.
  • Add sun-dried tomatoes as well as the chopped tomatoes, stock, thyme and bay leaves.
  • Allow to simmer gently for 15 minutes then stir in lentils and simmer for another 5 minutes.
  • Season with a pinch of salt and some freshly ground black pepper.
  • Remove bay leaves and then transfer vegetable mix to a deep pie dish or a casserole dish.
  • Drain potatoes, mash initially, then add and mix/mash in this order; butter, milk, yolks and then cheese.
  • Spread final mash over lentil mixture with a fork (so that there are some peaks which will brown up and look great).
  • Bake for about 25-30 minutes until top is golden brown, and mixture under mash is bubbling slightly.
  • Allow to sit for 5 minutes then serve.
