Lentil bake recipe

HIGH PROTEIN CHEESY LENTIL & PUMPKIN TRAY BAKE 

This recipe is one pan, cheesy and creamy but without the fat so it’s perfect for my meal prep lunches this week. Plus, the lentils are a great source of plant-based protein to help keep you feeling full.

Ingredients

1x leek diced
2 tsp minced garlic
2 1/2 cups chopped kale
2 x cups diced pumpkin
400g tin brown lentils
1/2 cup grated cheese of choice (you could use vegan cheese)
1/2 cup light cooking cream
2 vegetable stock cubes + (2 tbs hot water to dilute)
1 cup almond milk

Method

1. In a jug combine the cooking cream, stock cube, hot water and almond milk. 
2. Add olive oil to pan cook a leek and garlic. Add kale and cook for a few minutes.
3. Cut pumpkin into pieces, microwave for 4 minutes to soften.
4. Spray a baking dish with cooking spray. Layer on pumpkin, kale, cream and lentils and repeat. 
5. Top with grated cheese.
6. Cover with foil and bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 30 minutes or until cheese is melted and golden brown.

Makes 3 lunches. Can add cooked chicken before baking for an extra serve of protein.
