Place the potatoes, carrots, parsnips and squash in a pan of water and bring to the boil. Cook the vegtables until tender.

Drain the water from the pan of vegetables and add the cooked lentils, cream, butter, salt, black pepper, parsley and raw onion to the pan. Thoroughly mash the ingredients together.

Transfer the vegetable mash to an ovenproof dish, sprinkle with the cheese and place under a hot grill until the cheese melts.

Lovely served with sausages.
