1 cup lentils (pink/red are preferred)
2 vegetable bullion cubes
2 cups water
1 large (or two small) carrots, diced
1 celery rib diced ( in this case I added a chopped, frozen celery rib that I had put in the freezer before it went bad, like-wise the onion added in.)
In a large skillet, mix the above ingredients and cook on medium heat, stirring frequently.
In a small bowl mix into a paste 1/2 cup water and 3 tablespoons flour. Then add 1 teaspoon each of the following: basil, oregano, rosemary. Add 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
Add above mixture to cooled lentil/vegetable mixture. Simmer until it thickens, stirring constantly. Spread evenly in a 2 quart baking dish. Top w/ mashed potatoes.
Bake uncovered at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes.
(Obviously the mashed potatoes are not vegan, but you could make them that way by substituting soy or rice milk and vegetable oil.)
