DIRECTIONS

  • Peel the half-onion and stud with the cloves.
  • Combine onion, lentils, lemon zest, garlic, bay leaf, 1 teaspoon cumin and water in a medium-sized pan.
  • Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to medium and cook for 25-30 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed, taking care not to burn- you can add a little more water if needed, but try not to cook much more than 30 minutes as they should be'al dente'.
  • Reserve the garlic and chop finely, but discard the onion, lemon zest and bay leaf.
  • In a suitable container, whisk together the vinegar, oil, lemon juice, remaining cumin and reserved garlic, to make the dressing.
  • Stir the dressing through the lentils with the mint and chopped green onions, then season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Allow to stand for 30 minutes so that the flavors absorb.
  • Serve at room temperature.
