Give it a shot. If you haven't got carrots but do have bacon then try this recipe.
- 2 carrots, chopped
- 1 onion, sliced
- 200g green lentils
- 1 litre of vegetable stock (I used two oxo cubes worth (thanks Chloe))
- 2 glasses of red wine
- Salt and pepper
Fry the carrot and onion over a lowish heat in 3 tablespoons of olive oil. When it's all gone a bit yellow and soft pop in the lentils and then immediately the stock.
Let it simmer (low heat, lid off) for about 20 mins then add in two glasses of wine. Continue to let it simmer for a further 10-15 mins. Season with salt and pepper. Done.
Get some pasta on at the same time and munch!
