Instructions

Hob - From Ambient. No need to pre-soak. Rinse the lentils under running water then drain. Put the lentils in a saucepan and cover with 3 times their volume of water (try using vegetable stock, or half wine for extra flavour). Bring to the boil, then simmer for 20-25 minutes until the lentils are firm to the bite. Drain and serve.

Preparation and Usage

Easy to prepare
No need to pre-soak. Rinse and drain lentils then place in a saucepan and cover with 3 x their volume in water, or use veg stock and white wine for extra flavour. Bring to the boil and simmer for 30-35 minutes, until the lentils are cooked but still firm to the bite. Drain and serve.

Get creative
For the perfect plant-based Bolognese, boil Puy Lentils with some garlic for 25 minutes, season then set aside. Meanwhile, sauté chopped onion and garlic until soft. Stir in tomato purée and cook until slightly browned, then add red wine and reduce by half. Stir in the drained lentils together with tinned tomatoes and bay leaves. Bring to the boil and simmer for 12 minutes. Once ready, serve with tagliatelle and enjoy!
