    Lentil loaf
    Burgers/meat less balls/sausages
    Dip/spread
    Soup
    Bolognese
    Shepherd less pie
    Lentil, vegetable rice (spicy)

    Look for recipes online. There really are loads. Lentils are really versatile.

    I often make a lentil and sweet potato pate, its a bbcgoodfood website recipe and easy to find. It's great on toast for breakfast or lunch, and the smoked paprika gives it a nice kick.

    Carrot, Lentil and Tomato Soup .
    3 medium carrots chopped
    1 Large Onion
    400g Tomatoes chopped ( can substitute canned )
    Tomato Puree - optional
    125g Washed Lentils - I tend to use red )
    Half a Red Pepper
    570ml Stock or Water - I use Marigold Organic Stock Powder
    Parsley or Basil - I always have loads of home grown flat leaf French Parsley so use that .

    Chop the veg and herbs I dice the veg as I prefer chunkier soups .
    Place in a heavy Saucepan or Slow Cooker . Add the Lentils and Tomato Puree ( if used )
    Cover with the Stock or Water .
    Cook slowly on the hob for an hour and a half '
    Or Slow Cooker 4-6 Hours
    I add a little Black Pepper to taste , just a few twists of the grinder
    Blend if wished .
    Serve sprinkled with chopped fresh herbs .

    polly .

    This soup is amazing, if you like chorizo. I ramped up the smoked paprika a bit too
