This mushroom bake is an Easter traditional Romanian recipe, made vegetarian! It's one of my favorite Easter recipes I make every year!

Ingredients
  • 1 cup red lentils
  • 1 cup mushrooms, chopped (I used champignons)
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 eggs (for composition) + 3 more (optional – to place inside the veggie bake)
  • 1 bunch of parsley
  • 1 bunch of dill
  • 1 bunch green onions
  • 2 tsps thyme
  • sea salt and pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. Boil the lentils for 15 minutes then strain them very well and place them in a large bowl.
  2. Heat some olive oil in a large pan and saute the chopped onion, mushrooms, and carrot, for about 7-10 minutes. They don’t have to be completely cooked. Place them over the lentils in the bowl.
  3. Add 2 eggs, chopped parsley, green onions, dill, sea salt, pepper, and thyme. Start blending them all together.
  4. Optional – Boil 3 eggs.
  5. Place the composition in a previously greased form, any shape you want (preferably a taller one if you add the extra 3 eggs).
  6. Add half of the composition, place the peeled, boiled eggs and then cover them with the other half.
  7. Place in oven and cook at about 180ºC/356ºF for 30-40 minutes.
  8. Let it cool a bit before removing it from the form.
Notes
If you wait until it cools down a bit it will come out of the form really nice. I was impatient as always and cut it immediately so it didn’t stick together that well.
