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.

Brilliant recipe for new season spring vegetables, goes great with fish, meat or halloumi, also great on its own. Would highly recommend.

Very good! I used a bit more veggies than stated, and only about half of the dressing. Dressing was a tiny bit too oily, so next time I'd use a little less sesame oil. 1tbs is probably enough. I don't like boiling my veggies, so I simply poured some boiling water over them to make sure they remained nice and crisp. Was very easy to make!

This dish is so easy and delicious to make! I had no broccoli or chilli but the dish really didn't suffer for it. Such a tasty and easy one to put together. This will certainly become a regular dinner party dish.

This recipe is a regular staple in our house. Always features at BBQ's or where there is a buffet style spread. The kids love taking it to school too for lunch so often make double so they can do this. Goes great with meat, fish, tofu, whatever.

I did as someone said and cut the tender stem broccoli into smaller pieces. I added some cut up Quorn Pepper steaks for protein. Other than that it's one of the best GF recipes I've tried. Delicious!

This has to be one the best dishes I've ever eaten. Easy to make with complementing, punchy flavours and a lovely crunch. I took advice from previous comments and paired with soy and ginger salmon fillets - thanks Waitrose. Don't even hesitate; go buy the ingredients and make it tonight!

This was lovely and unusual - I might have added too much chilli though!

This is a really tasty, healthy and satisfying salad. As a main course we found it fed three. Next time I'll cut the tenderstem broccoli into shorter lengths as it was a bit tricky to mix and serve. I'll increase the main ingredients by a third to serve four but leave the dressing quantities the same as there was too much. Yum!
