This is Mum’s lentils recipe showing you how to cook lentils (quickly). It’s not an old family recipe for lentils or anything like that, just a quick recipe that she shared because I said I’d never cooked them.
- Green Lentils or Puy lentils
- Half an onion, finely chopped
- Clove of garlic, crushed
- Chicken or vegetable stock
- Quarter to one half a teaspoon of French mustard, depending on how big the spoon is.
Cook the lentils as on the packet and drain, fry the onion (but don’t brown) in a little bit of olive oil, add the garlic and cook through for a minute or two. Add the lentils, a small amount of stock and the mustard. Heat up for a minute or two and serve.
Good with pork chops, sausages and chicken.
