This lentils and veggies gratin recipe is AAAHMAZING!! Really! I just discovered how you can make a gratin and I’ll be using this technique for all my new casserole recipes. It turns a boring casserole into a delicious comfort meal!

I saw a cooking TV show where a similar recipe was prepared and that’s where I learn this technique from. The crispy crust is delicious and it’s really not that complicated to make. Also, the filling has a rich, ‘meaty’ texture even non-vegetarians will love. 🙂

You definitely have to give this lentils and veggies recipe a try!

Buna!Arata delicios!Eu cu linte nu am incercat varianta aceasta, chiar nu stiu de ce?!Dar acum ca am vazut ce bine arata , o voi prepara neaparat!Ma poticnesc mereu cand vreau sa prepar naut ,mei,linte imi vin idei prea repede!Caut retete peste tot , mai inventez eu combinatii , dar inca nu sunt multumita...!Nautul tind de fiecare data sa il transform in hummus , ca i-am innebunit pe ai mei :)!Lintea la fel , imi place sub forma de pateu!Diversitatea retetelor tale e mare , asa ca ma bucur cand ma inspira ceva bun!Te salut!

Buna Mihaela!

Ma bucur ca iti place!

Cu nautul si meiul ma cam chinui si eu...tot asa numai hummus fac din naut..aa si falafel :)) In schimb linte mananc fff des si experimentez mereu cu ea. De obicei fac chiftelute, supe, mancaruri la tava cum e aceasta. Te sfatuiesc sa folosesti linte rosie. E mult mai buna la gust, arata mai bine si se fierbe ff repede (in max. 15 minute). Am facut zilele trecute o mancare de linte, ff buna a iesit! Cu siguranta o sa mai refac reteta si o sa o pun pe blog.

Te pup!

Lentils are some kind of beans, very rich in protein and other nutrients. Please check wiki for more info.

i tried this recipe with high hopes mine turned out very dry and im guessing the recipe in the pick is a bit different the the recipe given as that is clearly not just parm on the top i will try it again with some tweaks to get it right

I'm sorry to hear that. Did you follow the exact quantities in the recipe? Mine was actually gooey and moist in the middle, because of the cheese, and crunchy on the outside. On top it's just parmesan mixed with breadcrumbs, that's how you make the gratin crunchy texture.

Hi, I was wondering whether there was an alternative to the cheese? My boyfriend is very dairy intolerant :(

Hi Juliet! You can use crumbled tofu inside the composition. On the outside, for the gratin effect, you can use 2-3 Tbsps of nutritional yeast mixed with 2 egg yolks and breadcrumbs. This way you'll replace parmesan and still achieve that crunchy texture and nice color.
