What you'll need
  • 200g red lentils
  • 1 onion, finely sliced
  • 50g sun-dried tomatoes drained of oil and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 50g dried apricots, chopped
  • 200g mixed nuts, chopped
  • 50g mixed seeds
  • 1½ tsp dried mixed herbs
  • 1 tsp soy sauce - this can be swapped for a gluten free ‘tamari’ for those who are gluten intolerant
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • Salt and pepper
Cooking directions

Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4.


Cook the lentils in plenty of water for 15 minutes, then drain using a fine sieve.


While the lentils cook, heat a little of the sun-dried tomato oil in your largest frying pan and gently fry the onion for 5 minutes.


Add all the other ingredients, except the seasoning, to the pan. Stir really well, add the cooked lentils and stir again, seasoning to taste.


Line a loaf tin (approximately 20cm x 10cm) with non-stick baking paper and spoon in the mixture.


Bake for 50 minutes and allow to cool slightly before removing and cutting into thick slices.
