..to bulk out mince recipes? Or would it taste odd? I have a load of brown lentils in the larder and need ideas what to make. I'd like to do a vegetarian moussaka with them but wondered whether if I made it with a bit of added lamb's mince for flavour, would the two textures be a bit strange?
i do this all the time, especially in things like sheperds pie and lasagne. My dh professes to not really like lentils, but he has never noticed them lurking in these dishes. i also add lots of carrots, mushrooms and so on to buulk out. If it doesn't taste meaty enough for you - just add a stock cube
