Preparation and Usage
Easy to prepare
No need to pre-soak. Rinse and drain the lentils. Then put them in a saucepan and cover with 3x their volume of water (try using veggie stock and some white wine for extra flavour). Bring to the boil and simmer for 20-25 mins, until the lentils are firm to the bite. Drain and serve.
For a healthy dinner: brown a couple of lamb shanks in a pan, and stew together with some cooked Puy Lentils and seasonal green veg. These lentils are also a fantastic base for quick, wholesome salads (hot or cold) and are delicious in tomatoey stews and cassoulets.

The pancetta and lentils are a great classic combination and it works as an alternative side to a summer barbecue or Sunday roast.
For an extra-silky sauce be sure to skin the tomatoes for this gluten- and dairy-free dish.
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.
