Ingredients

  • 2 Yukon Gold potatoes , peeled and cubed (about 850g)
  • 1 227-g pkg cremini mushrooms
  • 1 onion , coarsely chopped
  • 1 carrot , peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup butter , divided
  • 1 540-mL can lentils , drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup large-flake oats
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 3/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup frozen green peas
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Combine potatoes with enough water to cover in a medium pot. Bring to a boil and cook until tender, 10 to 12 min. Drain well and return potatoes to pot.
  • Pulse mushrooms in a food processor until finely chopped. Transfer to a bowl. Add onion and carrot to food processor and pulse until finely chopped.
  • Melt 1 tbsp butter in a large oven-safe frying pan over medium-high. Add mushrooms and cook until almost no liquid remains, 6 to 8 min. Add 1 tbsp butter, then onion mixture. Cook, stirring often, until softened, 3 to 4 min.
  • Stir in lentils, oats, 1 1/2 cups water, soy sauce, tomato paste, nutmeg and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium. Cook, stirring often, until oats are tender and mixture is still saucy, 10 to 12 min. Stir in peas until heated through, about 2 min.
  • Position rack in upper third of oven, then preheat broiler. Mash potatoes with remaining 2 tbsp butter and salt until smooth. Spread potato mixture over lentil mixture. Broil until golden brown, 2 to 3 min.
