Lentil Veggie Bake

I was browsing Pinterest trying to get some Inspo for a different type of dish to make with lentils! I was so sick of cooking them by themselves & trying to eat them plain (who wouldn’t be).

I stumbled upon a lentil veggie bake recipe, & kind of just followed the basics of cooking the rice & lentils together before mixing it all up with the cooked veggies & baking. I normally don't follow recipes & just create/experiment on my own -so if I do ever find a recipe, I always just loosely follow it! I have included all of the details on how I made the dish below!

The ingredients in this recipe make about 8-10 servings. I was able to get 3 meals out of it & Daniel ate about 5!


Vegetable Lentil Bake
  • 1.5 cup dry lentils (quick cook)

  • 1 cup rice(I used brown basmati)

    • **If you use regular white rice, decrease the liquid by 1 cup)

  • 1325 ml vegetable stock

  • 1 whole leek

  • 3 leaves kale

  • 10 mushrooms(2 cups)

  • 4 garlic gloves

  • 2 peppers (I did 1 yellow & 1 red)

  • 2 packs clubhouse shepherd pie mix

  • Lots of black pepper

  • 200g cheese (or light layer to put overtop of bake before putting in the oven)

    • use vegan cheese alternative to make vegan


  1. Add 1200ml vegetable stock, lentils & rice into a medium sized pot. Cover. Bring to a boil. Stir occasionally. Put to low-medium heat, cover & let stand for 20-25 mins. Stir. Continue cooking until liquid is cooked off.

  2. Finely chop leek & garlic. Add to medium/large sized saucepan with 2 tbsp coconut oil. Let cook, stirring occasionally for 5-7 mins before adding other veggies

  3. Preheat oven to 375

  4. Wash kale & tear leaves into small pieces. Chop mushrooms & red peppers. Add to the medium sized saucepan of leeks & garlic. Allow to cook for another 5-7 mins stirring occasionally.

  5. Once rice & lentil mixture is cooked, add to a large mixing bowl. Stir in 1 pack shepherds pie seasoning. Add 125ml vegetable stock. Stir until well combined.

  6. Stir in cooked veggies. Add another pack of seasoning, and stir until well-combined. Add lots of black pepper.

  7. Pour mixture into a baking dish(I used 13 x 9). Top with cheese.

  8. Bake for 25-30 mins, or until cheese is bubbling/starting to turn golden brown.

  9. Enjoy!! Daniel LOVED it !! Dax also ate a little bit(I didn’t let him eat much because of the seasoning I used, high sodium).
