Add the olive oil to a saucepan over a medium heat, then stir in the onion, garlic and carrot and sauté for 2-3 minutes. Then, add the garam masala, turmeric, allspice, cloves and bay leaves and cook for a further 2-3 minutes.


Then add the Marmite, lentils, mango chutney, sultanas and vegetable stock and bring to the boil and simmer for 35-40 minutes until the lentils have cooked and the mixture has thickened. Transfer this to an oven dish.


Preheat the oven to 180°C/355°F/Gas 4, then add the dairy-free butter to a pan over a medium heat and melt. Once the butter has melted, add the plain flour, nutritional yeast and turmeric to make a thick paste, then cook for 1-2 minutes. Slowly add the soya milk whilst stirring to avoid lumps. Once all of the milk has been used bring the sauce to the boil then remove from the heat.


Finally, pour the sauce over the lentil mixture and place in the oven for 20-25 minutes to bake, until the top has browned.
