Method

  1. Cook the potatoes in a pan of boiling water for 12-15 mins or until tender. Drain and return to the pan. Season, then lightly crush with a potato masher or fork. Stir in half the parsley.
  2. Heat 2 tbsp of the oil in a large, deep frying pan over a medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring regularly, for 2-3 mins. Increase the heat to medium-high, add the mushrooms and fry for 7-8 mins, stirring occasionally, until softened.
  3. Stir in the garlic, crushed chillies, lentils, chopped tomatoes, tomato purée and 250ml water. Simmer for 8-10 mins or until the sauce has thickened, then add the remaining parsley. Season. Preheat the grill to high.
  4. Tip the lentil and mushroom mix into a baking dish, then spoon over the crushed potatoes. Drizzle with the remaining olive oil and grill for 8-10 mins until the potatoes are golden.
