Stacey Hogan 21 day fix vegan lentil mash recipe

Ingredients (serves 3):

250g cooked lentils
1 tbsp ground flaxseed
1/2 red onion
3 cloves of garlic
3 tbsp. nutritional yeast
1 tsp. mixed herbs
1 tbsp chopped tomatoes (from a can)
Handful of chopped parsley
Cooking oil spray

For the mash:

1 cauliflower (approx 500g)
4 cloves of garlic
3 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tsp chives

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C.
  2. Peel and chop the red onion and the garlic for the meatballs
  3. Spray the cooking oil into a frying pan and gently fry the onion and garlic until the onion has softened.
  4. Once softened add to a food processor with the remaining meatball ingredients (leave one tbsp of the nutritional yeast out for coating) and pulse for a few seconds only. If you don’t have a food processor mix well in a large bowl then mash slightly.
  5. Divide the mixture into 9 balls, then coat in the remaining nutritional yeast.
  6. Using the same frying pan as before cook over a low heat for 3-4 minutes, turning regularly.
  7. Whilst the meatballs are frying start preparing the ingredients for the cauliflower mash. Chop the cauliflower into small chunks, then place in a pan of boiling water, bring to the boil then reduce to a simmer and leave until softened (10-15 minutes)
  8. Remove the meatballs from the frying pan, and place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
  9. Once the cauliflower has softened, drain, then add to a food processor with the rest of the mash ingredients, pulse until combined and creamy. If you don’t have a food processor, you can mash with a potato masher or use a hand blender.
  10. Serve and enjoy 🙂
