We’ve got a similar recipe with beetroot too, if that’s more your thing.


  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 200g Puy lentils, rinsed
  • Hot vegetable stock, enough to cover the lentils
  • Handful of feta, cubed
  • Handful of semi-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 2-3 cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 tbsp fresh basil and mint, chopped
  • A little grated lemon zest
  • A squeeze of lemon juice
  • Extra-virgin olive oil to serve


  1. In a pan, soften the red onion in the olive oil. Add the garlic clove and fry for 1 minute.
  2. Add the Puy lentils, cover with the hot vegetable stock, bring to the boil and simmer until tender.
  3. Drain, then stir in the feta, semi-dried tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, basil, mint and the lemon zest.
  4. Season, add the lemon juice and drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil to serve.
