Tasty, easy, quick, makes 4 large servings; great with cauliflower mash


• 1 can lentils- drained
• 1 tbsp olive oil
• 1 small onion
• 1 carrot
• 1 grated zucchini
• 1 tsp crushed garlic
• 1 tsp pesto
• 1 can crushed tomatoes; Italian flavoured is good
• 1/2 tomato can of water


Heat olive oil and soften finely chopped onion, garlic, diced or grated carrot and grated zucchini.
When soft, add pesto and drained lentils.
Cook 5 minutes stirring often.
Add tomatoes and 1/2 tomato can of water.
Simmer slowly around 15 minutes.
Great over cauliflower mash but flavours develop if it is left overnight and reheated.

    Enjoyed this recipe get the veg chunky added cayenne pepper and paprika to give it a bit of a kick will add a chilli next time I make. Goes well with cauliflower rice.
