Warm Lentil Salad
I don't know why but I was craving lentils for some kind of reason.. So from the moment I woke up, I knew that was going to be lunch.. A simple, delicious little lentil salad which reminded me of Paris (it's a staple in many Parisian cafes).. Lovely!
Easy. Prep & Cook Time: ~50mins
- 1/2 cup brown lentils
- 2 1/2 cups water
- 3 TBL Worcester sauce
- 2 carrots, chopped in small pieces
- 1 onion, chopped finely
- salt and cracked pepper to taste
- 1 TBL Dijon mustard
- 2 TBL vinegar (cider or wine)
- 3 TBL sunflower or nut oil
- 3 TBL olive oil
- pinch of sugar, salt and pepper
Soak the lentils in water for about 15 minutes.. Then, in a sauce pan brown the onions slightly, add the carrots, tomatoes and half the parsley.. Sauté them for a few minutes, then add the lentils, water, Worcester sauce, salt and pepper to taste.. Cover and simmer for about 30 minutes stirring occasionally, then cook uncovered for another 10 - 15 minutes.. Spoon the lentils on the plate, sprinkle with the remaining parsley and drizzle with some olive oil and vinaigrette.. Bon Appétit!
