Is there anything more comforting than mashed potatoes and stew all baked together in one gorgeous casserole? Of course not. The potatoes are golden and browned on top. Poke your fork in and inside is a juicy concoction of lentils, mushrooms, and veggies. Meat-and-potatoes heaven in one piping hot dish.


  • 2 cups (480 ml) cold vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch


  1. In a measuring cup, mix together the broth and cornstarch until the starch is mostly dissolved. Mix in the tomato paste and set aside.
  2. Preheat a large pan over medium heat. Sauté the onion and carrots in the olive oil with a pinch of salt until the onions are lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for 30 seconds or so, just until fragrant. Ad
