It was kinda one of those dishes where youre shoving a little bit of everything in and hoping for the best.
I was quite impressed, it was so tasty!

Wash and cut potato (no need to peel) into 1/2inch – 1inch slices and place on a baking tray. Brush with oil, sprinkle with thyme and oven bake for 20 minutes at 180 degrees, or until potatoes are soft, ensuring to turn half way.
Heat -tbsp oil in a pan and add in finely chopped carrots. Fry for around 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
Add in mushrooms, tomato paste, white wine vinegar, mixed herbs and broth, and stir through.
Add in lentils, bay leaf, salt and pepper, soy sauce and oxo cube, stir and bring to boil.
