Lentil Bake

An exceptionally cheap meal, filling and flavoursome it’ll warm you up on  a winters night.  If you can’t be bothered mashing potatoes, cover with foil before baking.

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, chopped

Preheat oven to 200ºC

Heat the oil in a large saucepan and sauté the onion, celery, garlic, and pumpkin until browned and beginning to soften.

Add the vegetable stock and heat through, using a wooden spoon to scrape the brownings from the bottom of the pan as you stir.

Top with mashed potato and cheese.  Bake for 30-35 minutes.
