Easy Lentil Hot Pot

Easy Lentil Hot Pot

A hearty and wholesome stew, full of earthy wholegrains and root vegetables.

Ingredients

(Serves 4)

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 onions, finely chopped

4 carrots, chopped

1 swede, chopped

50 grammes plain flour

1 litre vegetable stock

4 tablespoons barley

3 sprigs thyme, leaves only (optional)

1 kilogram potatoes, sliced

Method

1: Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas Mark 6.

2: Heat a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the oil and, once hot, add the onion and cook until softened.

3: Add the carrots and swede (you can add more veg). Place a lid on and gently fry until softened.

4: Remove the lid, add in the flour and stir it in to coat the veg and soak up any cooking juices.

5: Add the stock, barley and thyme and stir to mix well. Simmer for 15 minutes to thicken.

6: Bring a large pan of water to the boil and add the sliced potatoes. Cook for a couple of minutes to soften, then drain.

7: Pour the veg into a large baking tin. Then arrange the potato slices over the top of the vegetables so they completely cover them.

8: Cook for 45 minutes, or until the potatoes are golden on top.

9. Serve and Enjoy.
