Method

  1. Boil lentils in stock until just cooked, about 15 mins. Drain, then tip into a large bowl. Bring a saucepan of salted water to the boil, throw in the broccoli for 1 min, add the beans and peas for 1 min more. Drain, then cool under cold water. Pat dry, then add to the bowl with the lentils.

  2. Mix together the dressing ingredients with some seasoning. Pour over the lentils and veg, then mix in well with the chopped chilli. Pile onto a serving platter or divide between 4 plates and serve.

Amazing dish, I'd never tried Puy lentils before and this salad will definitely become a weekly staple in our house. Served it with sweet chilli salmon fillets for dinner and then had leftovers for lunch the next day with half a tin of tuna thrown in, both were amazing!

Beautiful fresh and healthy have made lots of times and keeps really well in the fridge for two or three days which makes it ideal for taking to work . I've made it with walnut oil when I've ran out of sesame oil and it also works well with green lentils if you want a cheaper option. It goes well with lots of things as a side but is also great as a main .

This recipe was utterly amazing! I had to use peas because in Germany soya beans are not widely available, but it was still gorgeous. Very flavoursome. Yum yum!

Delicious on it's own or even better with griddled halloumi. Will definitely be making this again.

Every time I have made this, at least one person has asked for the recipe. Loved by both vegetarians and non-vegetarians. Has the added bonus that I can prepare it in advance. Great for buffet-style meals.

My family love this fresh and tasty salad. It's nice serve chilled and without the dressing, too.

A lovely dish full of flavour. I used tinned lentils (not Puy) as I had them in store. I also substituted broad beans for soya beans, perfect. I had too much dressing so I saved it for another dish. My veggie friends loved this dish I cooked for a dinner party.
