Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks


Shell, try sweet potatoes?
I made this in December when needing a comforting, make ahead dinner after having a baby. My vegetarian brother loved it when I then made it again for him and it's on the menu this week only without the cheese as I'm off dairy at the mo.

So yummy I always go back for seconds; think I'll have to double the quantities!


Wow! as a confirmed, devout meat eater, I had this at my sisters house the other day and it was really gorgeous! Can definately recommend you give it a whorl!
I'm a type two diabetic and wondered if, instead of using cheese, I could use Feta or 1/2 fat cheddar. Has anyone else done this and what was it like?
Secondly, though New Potatoes are low GI, if I wanted to be really good, would Globe Artichokes work instead?
Going to give these two changes a go and will let you know how I get on.
Lucy, keep up the frugal recipies if they are all like this, more people will benefit. Ta. Love.


I Finally got round to making this tonight..& now have a very full tum and a happy satisfied husband,,its delicious and so simple..thanks for sharing!.x.


Lucy I am endebted to you. My autistic daughter who is so finnicky with food Loves this recipe Really LOVES it!
Thankyou, Thankyou, Thankyou.
We are vegetarian and it is generaly Sooooooooo difficult/impossible to persuade her to eat heathily (Protein, Iron etc.). This has done the trick
Bless You
p.s. I Love it too.


Hi there, would love to make this, am converting from metric to US measurements right now.....but what exactly are the herbs in the "mixed herbs?" and I'm assuming they are dried herbs? Thanks!


This just looks heavenly. What a great idea.


I imagine that a meal round at your house Lucy would be the most warm, cozy, and delicious affair............. a fun filled evening..............
Just as an aside, I was wondering if you got the e-mail I sent you? I haven't heard back from you, so I was wondering if it got lost in the ether..................


This looks so delicious. I'll definitely be making this at some point and I'll be sure to let you know how it turns out. Thanks for sharing! :~)


Ooh! This looks delish - I can't wait to give it a try. I love lentil-y dishes, the cheese and potatoes make it sound great - 3 favourite ingredients in one!


as always i will definitely be trying this out, lucy!

thanks for sharing!


that looks yummy! thanks for the recipe, I will give it a try.


Good morning, lovely Lucy! I will definitely try this...anything with potatoes suits me just fine. By the way, tonight I am making your Sweet and Sour Sausage recipe again....it is so yummy. Have a great day....oh...and when you make muffins....the trick is to NOT over mix after adding the dry ingredients.

Mrs Be

Lovely! Are you vegetarians too?

I have a general posting-recipes-on-blogs question: do you post other people's (I'm thinking cookbooks rather than granny's) recipes or do you not because of copyright? I never know so I don't. Just wondering.....I wasn't sure who to ask about this so I've started with you!


sounds delicious! perfect autumn food, even the right colour for turning leaves and pumpkins

Daisy Steiner

Perfect food for this season. I shall be trying to make these at some point in the next week. Yum!


Ooh, yum, will make that one. It looks delicious. Also, try to slice the potatoes before boiling. Kathyx


I too LOVE lentils - hangover from my vegetarian days at college. A big favourite in our house is Lentil Chilli with brown rice. For my little man I put some into another saucepan before I add chilli powder and fresh chillies to the main batch. Then melt in cheese and he has cheesey lentils, which he loved as a baby and still loves! Lentils freeze really well so I always make a huge batch and get it out of the freezer when required. I also cook extra when having tea and bring in the leftovers to reheat at work.

There's a GORGEOUS Jamie Oliver receipe for herby puy lentils which is just devine. He serves it as a side dish to (delicous) salmon, but I also make it by itself! http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/jamie-oliver/salmon-fillet-wrapped-in-prosciutto-with-herby-lentils-spinach-and-yogurt-recipe/index.html

And yes, lentils do make our house a bit 'windy' especially the male 2/3rds of it!!

OK - I'm STARVING now and it's only 11.15am!


I am really fancying this recipe. Some nice green beans on the side and some crusty bread and a glug of red wine to drink would finish this dish off nicely. I think I may know what I'm cooking tonight! Thanks Lucy!

Miriam Glen

Thanks for another lovely recipe Lucy - another one to try. I love your recipes - they're just the sort of healthy, homey food I like to cook myself.

I've already tried and love your Mackerel Fishcakes and your Penne Frittata and another recipe whose name escapes me just now.

Thanks again, and keep up the good work.

Happy Autumn


Ooo so pleased to have found you. I'm always on the look out for tasty vegetarian recipes which have been tried and tested. I love lentils too but they do make one rather "windy" don't you agree?

Your house looks lovely and homely too.


I've never had lentils, but this sure looks lovely, warm and comforting food for this time of year and so colourful.
