RECIPE TIPS
USING DRIED LENTILS

Using dried lentils cuts the cost of this dish and, if you cook a whole pack, you can freeze whatever you don’t use for other dishes. Rinse a 500g pack green lentils under cold water. Put in a pan with plenty of cold water to cover (don’t add salt, as this will toughen them), then cook for 20-30 mins until tender. Drain and use as required.
