1 cup vegetable broth
2 tsp. Dijon mustard

3 medium carrots, diced
1 medium onion, chopped
2 large cloves garlic, minced
2 cups cooked lentils
1/3 cup vegetable broth
14.5-oz. can diced low-sodium tomatoes, drained
1 Tbs. tomato paste
1/2 tsp. dried oregano

1. Make potato topping: In large saucepan, combine potatoes with enough cold water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain well.

3. Preheat oven to 350F. Bring small saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil. Add carrots, and cook 2 minutes to blanch. Drain, and set aside.

5. Stir in lentils, blanched carrots, vegetable broth, tomatoes, tomato paste, oregano and
Worcestershire sauce. Mix well. Cook, stirring often, until flavors have blended, about 10 minutes. Season with freshly ground pepper to taste.

6. Lightly coat 3-qt. gratin dish or shallow casserole with cooking spray. Spoon filling into
prepared dish. Top with dollops of mashed potatoes.

7. Bake until heated through, 30 to 45 minutes. Let stand 10-15 minutes before serving.
