Quick Lunch: Warm Lentil Salad


This is one of my all time favourite quick healthy lunches which can be easily transported for a filling lunch-on-the-run. Cook some puy or green lentils but make sure you do not over cook them as it is nice to retain some bite. Once cooked, drain and sauté with a table spoon of olive or rapeseed oil, half a clove of garlic, fresh thyme (or dried), sliced red bell pepper. Take off the heat after about two minutes. You are literally just warming through the ingredients and getting rid of the raw garlic taste. Add a tablespoon of good balsamic vinegar and season to taste, add some torn goats cheese or feta. Great as a stand alone dish or with fish, this is a super healthy yet filling meal. Jouir! x
