  • 8 rashers bacon chopped

    2 carrots finely diced

    1 stick celery, finely diced

    1 onion finely diced

    2 tomatoes diced

    2 pouches merchant gourmet puy lentils or 2 cans of lentils drained

    1 tbsp of water (optional)


A nice filling supper dish

Heat a frying pan to a medium heat, add the bacon and fry for a minute or so until the fat starts to melt. Add the carrot and celery, and fry for

a further 2 minutes, then add the onion and tomatoes and fry until the carrot and celery soften (the tomatoes will break down and form a sauce). If you want a bit more sauce add the tablespoon of water.

Stir in the Puy lentils and heat through, and serve.


This recipe is really great with a fried egg on top
