Quick braised chard & lentils

Rainbow or Swiss chard is a nutritious and vibrant ingredient- here we team it with robust Puy lentils to create an interesting side dish
- STEP 1
Cut the chard stalks into batons and roughly shred the leaves. Heat half the olive oil in a large sauté pan. Add the chard stalks, garlic, chilli and a splash of water. Cook over a low heat for 8-10 mins until softened, then add the leaves and cook until completely wilted.
- STEP 2
Prepare the lentils following pack instructions. Take the chard off the heat and stir through the lentils. Season, dress with more olive oil and the lemon juice, then serve.
