  • This was a easy, tasty,

    This was a easy, tasty, hearty dish. I added 2 carrots in step 2 & used 3 fresh, chopped tomatoes instead of tin. I also used 200g red split lentils instead of tins and added more water as suggested to cook, I did add an extra 1/2hr overall & could have cooked for longer. Left out Maggi Seasoning & used tblsp nutritional yeast instead. Thank-you... I will definitely be making this again.
