The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.

Lentil and Pumpkin Pie

The chef has been at it again. He’s cooked a masterpiece that he made up. Here you go Libby!

Lentil and Pumpkin pie

It was delicious. 


  • Medium Chopped onion
  • Small cup of orange or red Lentils
  • One and a half cups of cold water
  • Veggie stock cube or a miso stock cube
  • Half a small pumpkin cut into thin matchsticks
  • 1 pack Frozen pastry (GF)
  • Sunflower oil 

What he did

First make a Dahl like lentil mixture. Fry the onion in a little sunflower oil. Add the lentils and a cup and a half of cold water. 

Bring to the boil then simmer until the water reduces significantly. The lentils will gradually disintegrate. 

Meanwhile line a tray with baking paper. Place a rectangular piece of pastry on the tray. Then put a layer of lentil mix in the middle in a stripe. Add some pumpkin sticks. Then repeat the lentil and pumpkin layer. 

Fold the pastry over the filling. 

Put it in the oven at 180 degrees for 25 mins or until the pastry is nicely golden brown. 

We ate it with peas and sweet potato. It was so delicious.
