3 of our favourite lentil recipes

There are few ingredients capable of as much as the humble lentil. They’re a great long-lasting pantry item, they’re inexpensive and they’re a good protein alternative – a certified triple threat if you ask us. Here, we’ve rounded up three of our favourite ways to use lentils.

Vegan cauliflower-and-lentil tacos

What we love about this recipe is that while it might be vegan, you really wouldn’t know it, and reminds us that vegan food doesn’t have to be boring. If you’re not strictly plant-based, you could swap out the cashew dressing for yoghurt or sour cream, and go wild with your taco toppings. Crispy fried onions or pickled onions, sliced jalapenos or a dollop of hummus would all work wonders here too.

Creamy tomato and harissa lentils with brinjals

One can of lentils, combined with the punch of harissa and tomatoes, goes on to become a deeply comforting and speedy midweek dinner.

30-minute massaman dhal curry

A warming veggie curry that comes together in under 30 minutes? You better believe it. We love the butternut in this – it bulks the curry up, while adding a satisfying texture variation. Use sweet potato or pumpkin if you prefer, and broccoli in place of the cauliflower. This also freezes well, so feel free to make double for later.
