Lentil Bake

by Edward Daniel

Lentil bake and my version of it, I have been meaning to put down on paper for sometime. And, here it is. What I love about this dish is that the nutritional yeast and plum seasoning enhance the subtle flavour of the lentils. This an amazing simple dish to put together.
