Although I’m writing this in the sweltering heat of Spain, the mornings are getting cooler and nights darker already in the UK – which seems somehow strange after the long and unusually hot summer we experienced this year. I first created these delicious smoky lentils last week with my friends and fellow bloggers Sara aka Shiso Delicious and Bettina aka Betinas Kitchen while we were away on a little getaway in the Herefordshire countryside. We cooked, styled and had fun sleeping in a yurt. It was a completely impromptu meal made with the random ingredients we’d brought, but it was so delicious I had to recreate at home and post. I’ve made a few tweaks; I used split red lentils here as that’s what I usually use at home but for my first version I used whole red lentils which give a coarser texture – absolutely delicious and I recommend using them if you can get hold of them. Really good served with my cabbage salad for texture and crunch! Enjoy! And I’d love to hear what you think x
But I’ve always loved the changing seasons and as my food naturally veers towards comfort food the coming of Autumn means I can legitimately indulge my urge to make huge pots of comforting stews, dahls, curries and soups.
And also I added some extra veggies – harrisa roast cauliflower and aubergine. The perfect addition I think.
