  • Remove Thyme Sprigs and mash Lentils.
  • Add salt, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic and pepper to taste. Mix well.
  • Serve warm or cold. Decorate with black olives, capers, cherry tomatoes and onion rings.
  • NOTE: Mirj suggested to add some lemon zest to the lentil puree. Thank you Mirj, I think this is a great idea to support a fresh note.
