  1. Thoroughly wash your lentils and rice. Cook them following the packet instructions. The recipe will hold together better if the lentils are slightly overcooked. Once cooked, drain and set aside.
  2. In the meantime, prepare all your other ingredients.
  3. Preheat oven to 200°C.
  4. Heat the oil in a large pan or wok. Once heated, add the onion, garlic, carrot, and kale. Cook for a two minutes.
  5. Add the mushrooms, oregano and thyme and continue to cook until everything is tender.
  6. Using a large mixing bowl, combine your vegetables, rice, and lentils with the ground flax seeds, nutritional yeast, nuts, and raisins.
  7. Mix everything well to ensure good binding of the ingredients.
  8. Press the mixture firmly into a casserole dish.
  9. Cook for 25-30 minutes.
  10. Serve with some rich onion gravy!
