Absolutely fantastic. I followed the recommendation to put rice in with the lentils and it was very filling. It is lovely on a hot sunny day. I added salad leaves for colour.

The combination of feta and mango is so tasty and the texture of the baked feta is great! We added rice to the lentils to make it more filling, we'll definitely be making this again
