The Wonder of Lentils

In general, I am a major lover of lentils. They're comforting, cheap and nutritious! They also make a great addition to salads if you buy the ready cooked Puy Lentils in tins.

This recipe is to go along with the duck confit recipe posted a few days ago...

Serves 2.

  • 200g uncooked Puy or green lentils
  • An onion or shallot
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, unpeeled
  • 2 tablespoons vinaigrette
  1. Put the lentils in a saucepan with cold water, then bring to the boil. 
  2. Add the other ingredients and simmer for 10 mins or so.
  3. Strain the lentils, getting rid of the other ingredients apart from the carrots.
  4. Add the vinaigrette and season.
On another lentil related note, if anyone has a really good recipe for dhal, I'd love to know it...
