This was added to your Recipe Box.
Put the lentils and water into a medium saucepan and simmer very gently, uncovered, until the lentils are tender and all the liquid is absorbed. This should take about 20 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350F. Saute the onion in the butter for 10 minutes until soft and lightly browned. Add the onion to the lentils, together with the lemon rind and juice, yeast extract and salt and pepper to taste. Puree in a blender or food processor, or beat well with a wooden spoon, to make a thick puree. Boil the leeks until tender, then drain. Put them into a shallow ovenproof dish and pour the lentil mixture on top. Sprinkle with the bread crumbs and the grated cheese. Bake for 40 - 45 minutes, until golden and crisp on top and hot a bubbly underneath. Serves 4
