If using it for 4 portions it would be 4 quite small ones, fine at 3 portions. For some reason my cheese on top didn’t go bubbly it went hard but it was still fine. Made with dried gluten free bread crumbs which worked well and served with peas. Watch the simmering as mine was done in half the suggested time. Will definetly be making again.

January 18, 2018 No need to soak red lentils Lindsay Redpath January 18, 2018 Fyi recipe says add water where it should say add stock – might confuse less confident cooks. Jayne Kershaw Owen January 18, 2018 Would the lentils need to be soaked overnight? I love lentils but I never know what to do with them! Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
