  • 200g green lentils
  • One courgette
  • One finely sliced shallot
  • 2 cloves finely sliced garlic
  • One bay leaf
  • Half of one vegetable or chicken stock cube
  • To taste salt and pepper
  • 2-3 eggs

Recipe Method

To start prepare the green lentils by boiling till a la dente with the bay leaf and half stock cube.

Whilst the lentils are cooking slice the courgette into strips and then griddle or fry in the olive oil with the shallot and garlic till slightly coloured and soft. Add the cooked courgette, shallots and garlic to a warm bowl.

Once the lentils are cooked, drain and remove the bay leaf, then add to the bowl and mix with the courgette.

Fry the eggs gently in olive oil till they’re cooked as you prefer (soft yolks are my preference), then add to the bowl.

Serve and enjoy :-)
