What's in the fridge ?

Thursday is the day we go through the fridge see what needs using up and can be made into a meal from the store cupboard, we had left over mashed potatoes left over boiled and marinated Anya potatoes, so after a look in the cupboard I made potato topped lentil casserole


Chopped onion
1 celery stalk chopped fine
3/4 crushed garlic cloves
2/3 tablespoons of vegetable oil
1 tablespoon of vegetable marg [you can use butter]
1 teaspoon of dried ginger
1 teaspoon of dried chilli powder
1 tablespoon of gram marsala
1 teaspoon of turmeric
4 handfuls of red lentils
2 handfuls of frozen garden peas
1 pint of veg stock[ I use marigold low salt ]

Left over mashed potatoes /or sliced boiled potatoes

Sweat the onion and celery in the oil and marg until softened add the spices and garlic and cook for about 5 minuties if getting dry splash in a little water

Add the lentils and stir through for a minute or so and then add stock, cook until lentils soften add the peas and cook 1 more minute, cool and pop into casserole dish and then add cold mashed potatoes or slices of cooked potato
cook in a medium oven 180 approx for 30 minutes and serve with crusty bread 

I made one large one for tonight's dinner topped with mashed and 3 smaller ones for lunch's tomorrow
