A nice warming lentil dish; good as a side with sliced hard-boiled egg to garnish or as a main. A tasty, low-fat meal at only at 322 kcals it’s good for those watching their weight and with some nice fruit or yoghurt to follow makes a satisfying meal. It’s easily adapted for others with heartier appetites too – toss in some toasted cashews and/or serve with wedges of hard-boiled egg.
- Place the lentils in a large saucepan of boiling water (adding stock at this stage could make the lentils too hard and unpalatable) and cook until just tender, then drain.
- Meanwhile, melt half the butter in a large frying and cook the onion, garlic and spices together until the onion is transparent and soft.
- Add the lentils, the crumbled stock cubes and the remaining butter to the onion. Combine well and cook until heated through.
- Remove from the heat, stir in the parsley and serve.
