Directions

  1. Take a 400g tin of green or puy lentils and add it to a pan with about a pint of hot vegetable or chicken stock. (If using dried puy lentils, these don’t take too long to cook first, but do follow the packaging instructions for preparation so they don’t get too mushy or stay too hard.) According to your taste, add chopped celery or largish chunks of garlic clove. Warm the ingredients through by slowly simmering in the pan for 20-30 minutes, making sure it stays moist enough towards the end. Don’t to speed up the cooking by boiling otherwise your lentils will lose their shape. By the time it is ready, the garlic should be soft and not at all strong to taste. Drain off any excessive liquid but make sure the lentils haven’t dried too much. Tip the cooked mixture out onto a wide shallow bowl and toss in either two or three meaty sausages cooked and chopped into bite-sized chunks, or diced feta cheese.
