  • ½ cup oat flakes

  1. Preheat an oven to 400F/200C.
  2. Rub the potatoes with a little oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet and roast until tender, about 45 minutes. Set aside
  3. In a medium pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until almost tender, 4 minutes.
  4. Add the lentils, oats, water, pepper and nutmeg. Bring to a gentle simmer
  5. Simmer until the mixture has a stew-like consistency, about 15-20 minutes.

  7. Spoon in a generous tablespoon of vegan butter, then top with an equally generous amount of lentils.
