The pancetta and lentils are a great classic combination and it works as an alternative side to a summer barbecue or Sunday roast.
Quick to cook up, this dish works because the naturally delicious flavours of the ingredients are allowed to shine through without being concealed. The spices add a delicate and delicious edge which infuse exciting flavours into the dish, and the cumin-flavoured lentils are a tasty take on plainer, pasta-based dishes.
Orange and cardamom complement the natural sweetness of carrots and cashews in this tasty meal.

This is a light and healthy salad that tastes just as good the day after it is made. If you fancy serving with homemade croutons, simply drizzle a little olive oil over sliced ciabatta bread, cook until crisp and golden on a preheated griddle pan and cut into croutons.
You can’t really go wrong with roasted vegetables. Here we’ve added Puy lentils, some soft cheese and a light mustardy dressing. It makes a wonderfully lush buffet dish, as it won’t wilt or spoil. Photo © Richard Jung
