Lentil & Mushroom Cottage Pie

Lentil & Mushroom Cottage Pie
Serves: 6 servings Prep time: 10min. Cook time: 45min.
A hearty dish without being heavy. The ground flaxseeds not only help you reach your omega 3 intake for the day, but act as a bulking agent to make the lentil "mince" stay thick and stew-like. Cauliflower in place of potato mash keeps this dish weight-loss-friendly and light, whilst still tasting amazing!
