This dish will overthrow any belief that vegan food can’t be simple to rustle up.

Make this:

  • When you fancy a winter salad that’ll have you all heated up as you take a bite
  • When you’ve got a Games night with the lads and need a dish that’ll have all fired up for a winning spree
  • When you’ve got a Mexican night and only puy lentils will abate your hunger for something groovy

Puy Lentils with Pineapple and Roasted Tomatoes was inspired when creating a fakeaway while at home – a bit of spicy citrusy habanero chili with pineapple and roasted tomatoes.

Puy lentils are small, green and speckled blue and have a peppery taste, rich in dietary fibre and good for our digestive system.  They are a variety of lentil that come from the Le Puy region of France having grown in the same region for over 2000 years, grown in volcanic soil.

I purchase my habanero chilli from a quaint Mexican supermarket near Warren Street in London, called Mestizo Market which can be found here.

Love.
