Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Very thinly slice the potato (unpeeled) into 0.5cm slices. TIP: Cutting the potato very thin makes sure it cooks through and browns in the oven! Place the potato slices on an oven tray lined with baking paper, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat, then roast until tender, 20-25 minutes.


While the potato is roasting, finely chop the brown onion. Finely chop the carrot (unpeeled). Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). Pick and finely chop the rosemary (see ingredients list) and thyme leaves. Thinly slice the silverbeet. Drain and rinse the lentils.


In a large frying pan, heat the butter and a drizzle of olive oil over a high heat. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook until browned, 5 minutes. TIP: Cooking the mushrooms first allows them to brown and develop flavour. Add the onion, carrot, garlic, rosemary and thyme to the pan and cook until softened, 3-4 minutes. Add the tomato paste and cook for 2 minutes. Add the Dijon mustard, lentils, water and crumbled vegetable stock (1 1/2 cubes for 2 people / 3 cubes for 4 people). Bring to a simmer, then stir through the silverbeet until wilted


Transfer the lentil mixture to a medium baking dish and arrange the roasted with slices over the top to cover. Sprinkle over the shredded Cheddar cheese. TIP: For an evenly browned top, try to avoid overlapping the potatoes.


Transfer to the oven and bake until the cheese is melted and bubbling, 10-12 minutes. Place the bake-at-home ciabatta directly on the wire racks in the oven and cook until heated through, 5 minutes.


Divide the cheesy lentil bake between plates and serve with the crusty ciabatta. TIP: For the low-calorie option, serve with 1/2 the ciabatta.
