Meat Free Monday - Lentil Casserole

Good morning! So far so good with this year's resolutions (I realise that we're only ten days in, but still!) - here's a delicious meat-free recipe for a Meat Free Monday! Chuck in any old vegetables you have - we used frozen veg and whatever else was left in the fridge as well as the chickpeas and lentils!

Lentil and Chickpea Casserole

Serves 4-6

- 2 onions
- 3-4 cloves of garlic
- 5 carrots
- 1 cup of green beans
- 1 cup of peas
- 1 cup of sweetcorn
- 1 cup of lentils
- 1 400g tin of chickpeas
- 2 stock cubes
- 1 tsp each of dried oregano, ginger and chilli powder

1. Chop all the vegetables and fry the onion and garlic with the herbs and spices in a large pan.
2. Soften the carrots and add the peas, sweetcorn and green beans.

3. Transfer the mixture into a large casserole dish, and add the chickpeas and lentils.
4. Make up 2 cups of stock (same cup size as the lentils) and add to the casserole.

5. Bake in the oven for 60-75 mins, adding more water if necessary.
6. Munch with crusty bread!
