Serves: 4

Suitable for: VEGANS


  • 75g mushrooms
  • 75g brown lentils (soaked)
  • 50g pinhead oatmeal (soaked)
  • 50g red kidney beans (soaked & boiled)
  • 25g margarine
  • 150g carrots

Prepare vegetables & pulses in advance:
Soak the kidney beans overnight then cook for 30-35 minutes. Soak the lentils for 2 to 3 hours and the oatmeal for about 1 hour.
Finely chop mushrooms, grate carrots, chop onions & garlic cloves. You can use food processor to speed up progress.

Add brown lentils and grated carrot and simmer on low heat until lentils are soft (around 20 minutes), stirring to prevent sticking. The moisture content of the soaked lentils and carrots should be sufficient, but if not add a small amount of vegetable stock or water.
Add mushrooms and cook another 5 minutes before adding cooked kidney beans.
