  • Hi my lovely ones  wondering if I can plant
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition Hi my lovely ones - wondering if I can plant a seed for you before you launch into the weekend... do you reckon we can all come together and think about how we can be super extra resourceful with the bits and pieces left in the fridge before we do the next shop and refresh for the week ahead? Look at every little herb stem, veggie 'scrap', piece of roast veggie or miniscule amount of lentils or meat or WHATEVER and consider - how can I best make use of this?

VEGETARIAN COTTAGE PIE FOR MEAT FREE MONDAY

Made this beauty on my segment today on The Morning Show on 7. Scroll down and you can watch the segment too!

You will be missing out if this doesn’t hit your #meatfreemonday menu soon. Perfect warmer as the weather cools and the days are a little darker and charging all the best of nutrition into one dish. Think…

  • Cauliflower to support liver and metabolism
  • Lentils for vegetarian protein, iron and fibre
  • Tomatoes for powerful antioxidant lycopene
  • Nutritional yeast to boost the B12 factor where otherwise it may go amiss in plant based foods
  • Teff for that extra hit of protein, calcium and iron in the dish.

Ready?

VEGETARIAN COTTAGE PIE

GF : DF : SF : V

Serves 4

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 brown onion, peeled and chopped

2 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced

2 carrots, ends trimmed and diced

2 stalks celery, diced

2x 400g tins brown lentils, rinsed and drained

1 tablespoon tomato paste

2 tablespoons flour (we used gluten free teff flour)

1x 400g tin chopped tomatoes

2 bay leaves

2 teaspoons dried oregano or parsley leaves

1 head cauliflower (approximately 500g florets)

sea salt and black pepper

Place a large frypan on medium heat, add 1 tablespoon olive oil, onion, garlic carrots and celery and saute for 6-8minutes. Add lentils, tomato paste, flour, chopped tomatoes, bay leaves, herbs and 1 tin full (350-400ml) of water. Season with sea salt and black pepper, bring to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Whilst simmering, steam the cauliflower florets until soft, then mash or puree with remaining olive oil, sea salt and black pepper. Preheat oven to 200C. Once lentil filling is cooked, pour into a large pie dish (1.5-2L capacity) and top with cauliflower mash. Place in top of oven and cook for 20-25 minutes. Allow to cool and set for approximately 5 minutes and serve.

    in the nutritional paragraph at the top you say ‘nutritional yeast’ – but there isn’t any shown in the ingredients or the method, so?
