  • 4 large potatoes
  • 1 large red onion diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp garlic power
  • 2.5 cups chestnut mushrooms chopped
  • 2 cups red lentils
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup cashew milk
  • 2.5 cups broccoli chopped
  • 5 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2.5 cups spinach leaves

To serve

  • 2 medium avocados
  • juice of 1 lime
  • sea salt to taste
  • fresh sweet corn
  • alfalfa sprouts


  • Preheat an oven to 200 degrees C/392 F. Bake the potatoes for 45-50 minutes, depending on the size of the potatoes. 
  • Add the red onion, garlic and garlic powder to a non-stick saucepan on a medium-high heat and stir for 2-3 minutes, until translucent. Add the mushrooms and continue stirring for around 4 minutes more. 
  • Lower the heat and add the red lentils and cover with water, but be sure not to pour in too much. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 
  • Simmer on a low-medium heat for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally and adding more water when necessary. Around 10 minutes into the cooking process, pour in the cashew milk. 
  • At the last minute, stir in the broccoli, nutritional yeast and spinach. Cook until the spinach wilts and the broccoli softens slightly. 
  • To make the avocado sauce, mash the avocados using a fork in a mixing bowl with lime juice, seasoning to taste with salt. 
  • Serve the potatoes with the lentil filling, avocado sauce, fresh sweetcorn and alfalfa sprouts. The lentil filling can be stored in the fridge for 3-4 days in an airtight container.
