My lentils recipe: I have guests at the weekend. It's only an overnight stop whilst en route back their home in France. They aren't French but after years in Germany and France they are more continental than British. They also happen to know good food when they see and taste it, so cooking their supper on Sunday evening will be an interesting challenge on my part.
The supper will be informal and laid back so nothing too fancy. Tasty and wholesome is the order of the day. Of course having just finished watching the Rick Stein Spain series , it would be wise to go safe and try out something that he prepared during the series. A lentils recipe, typical Spanish 'casera' cuisine should go down well, and with my added 'twist' to the dish it’s likely to be a safe bet.
I have always avoided cooking with pulses, grains or such like due to the need to soak the pulses, but time is on my side and I have plenty of time to prepare in advance. Well, at least that’s the theory!

Soak the lentils in cold water overnightThe following day when you intend to prepare the dish, cook the lentils in fresh clean water as per the instructions on the packet i.e. for about
Serve hot with a baguette of crusty bread.
You can accompany this dish a small dish of 'patatas bravas' if you wish.
