Lentil and Mushroom Cannelloni

Lentil and Mushroom Cannelloni by Ng @ Whats for Dinner?Vegetarian cannelloni (and lasagna) is often just a tube of cheese topped with more cheese. Not really diet food! I made a 'meaty' vegan filling and then finish the dish with a tiny bit of cheese. Don't be put off by the number of ingredients. This really is a simple dish.
Lentil and Mushroom Cannelloni by Ng @ Whats for Dinner?For Lentil and Mushroom Filling
Makes 4-5 cups
1 cup dried lentils
2 carrots
1 onion
5 sun dried tomatoes in oil
4 cloves of garlic
2 cups of mushrooms
1/2 tsp Marmite
2 Tbs tomato paste
1 cup of red wine
1/2 cup tomato sauce
hot pepper, salt, pepper, herbs, fennel,bay leaves and Italian herbs

Wash the lentils and cover with an about 2 inches of water. Bring to a boil with a pinch of salt, cover and lower the heat. Cook for 15min until most of the water is gone and the lentils are soft.

Get out your food processor with all its bits and bops. Mince the onion, garlic and sun dried tomatoes. Add to a non stick pan on med heat. Grate the carrots and add to the pan. Slice the mushrooms and add to the pan. Add 1 tsp fennel seeds and 2 bay leaves along with any other herbs and spices. Stir and let all the water cook out of the veg. This will take about 10 min. When the water is almost gone add the Marmite and tomato paste. Mix in. Add the wine. Let the wine cook out. Add the tomato sauce and lentils (drain the lentils first if there is lots of water). Cook for about 10 min, check the taste, turn off and let cool.

Lentil and Mushroom Cannelloni by Ng @ Whats for Dinner?Try to let the cannelloni rest before eating, they are hot!!! The lentil and mushroom filling was so rich! I loved it, Saeid said meat would be nicer but he still had 3rds so I guess he liked it!


  1. Marmite is definitely disgusting. I threw out what you left in the frig, but I think there is another jar in the cupboard YUCK. Despite the marmite, your dish looks lovely.
