1 tomato (chopped)

2 celery sticks (diced)

2 carrots (diced)

2 tablespoons olive oil

Method

  1. Heat a pan with the olive oil, then saute the onions, celery and diced carrots for 10 minutes – mix well.
  2. Add a splash of white wine into the pan for extra body and flavour. Then add the potatoes, lentils and vegetable stock and keep mixing.
  3. For some extra flavour, now add the parsley and thyme. Allow the entire mixture to simmer for about 30 minutes before removing the herbs.
  4. Add some more mashed potato into the mixture to make it thick and creamy, or just wait for it to reduce. Splash some red wine vinegar, then mix well before serving.
