  1. Prepare mashed potatoes
    Add potatoes to a large pot and cover with enough water so they are just submerged. Bring to a boil on high heat and cook until they slide off easily when pierced with a fork, around 15 minutes. Then drain the potatoes and add them back to the pot. Season with salt, add the coconut oil and vegan cooking cream and mush until tender and fluffy.
  2. Prepare the Stew
    Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the cooking oil, chopped onion and salt. Soté for three minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add mushrooms, back pepper and oregano and soté for another five minutes, stirring frequently.
  4. Add lentils, water, soy, vinegar and cooking cream and cook for another 3 to 5 minutes. Add more water if needed.
  5. To serve, divide the mashed potatoes between serving plates and top with lentils and mushrooms stew. Garnish with fresh parsley.
  6. How to store
    Store leftovers separately, up to 4 days in the fridge or up to 1 month in the freezer.
