Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the oil in a saucepan and quickly fry the shallots, garlic and ginger, then add the lentils, chicken stock and half the soy. Simmer until the liquid has reduced by half.

  • STEP 2

    Heat the sunflower oil in a frying pan, add the broccoli florets and fry until the edges are charred and toasted. Toss the broccoli occasionally so that it doesn’t burn. Dress with the remaining soy sauce and the sesame oil, then stir through the lentils. Just before serving, scatter over the coriander and green chilli.
