  1. Place the flours, cottage cheese and 2 tbs of oil in a food processor and pulse to combine. Add 1 tbs of So Good Lite and pulse until the pastry forms a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and rest in the fridge while preparing the filling. Preheat the oven to moderately hot, 200°C.
  2. Heat a little oil in a frypan, and cook the onion and garlic over medium heat until golden. Add the thyme, mushrooms and lentils and cook over high heat for 5 minutes, or until softened.
  3. Whisk together the eggs and remaining So Good Lite. On a lightly floured board roll out the pastry into a 30cm round. Press into a 22cm flan tin and bake blind for 10 minutes.
  4. Spoon the mushroom mixture into the shell. Place the flan on a baking tray, pour in the mixture and bake for 35 minutes, or until set.
