  • 300 g (~ 1 1/4 cups) dried green lentils
  • 6 medium mushrooms, diced
  • 2 bell peppers, diced (I used yellow and red)
  • 400 g tin (~ 1 1/3 cups) chopped tomatoes
  • 350 ml (~ 1 1/3 cups) vegetable stock
  • 100 g (~ 1 cup) grated cheddar cheese
  • Salt
  • Black pepper


  • Add the first 5 ingredients (lentils through veggie stock) to the slow cooker, and mix well to combine. Cook on high for 3 1/2 hours, or until the lentils are soft.
  • Add the grated cheese, and mix well until it's completely melted (you can put the lid back on for a few minutes to help it melt, if needed). Season to taste, and serve warm. I garnished mine with a little semi-dried parsley and some finely grated cheese.
