  • 1/2 bag a bag of dried puy lentils
  • Bouillion for cooking lentils

other salad bits

  • 3 carrots peeled
  • 1/2 a red pepper
  • A bit of onion
  • A small clove of garlic
  • 1/2 a bunch of parsley
  • 1/2 cucumber

seasoning / sauce

  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Juice of half a lemon


  • Put the lentils on the stove-top to cook. Use the recommendations for cooking on the package of lentils. I usually add bouillon to the lentils whilst they cook just for a bit of additional flavour.
  • While the lentils were cooking, chop up the carrots, pepper, and onion. Chop these ingredients up to approximately the same size as the lentils themselves.
  • Use a garlic press to mince the garlic.
  • Chop the parsley rather finely with a chopping knife.
  • Dump it all into a bowl. Add the salt and pepper. Drizzle olive oil around the bowl three times. Same with the balsamic vinegar. Squeeze the juice of half a lemon.
  • Mix & serve.
