• 200g Puy lentils
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 2 sprigs thyme
  • 200g kale, use flat leaf kale if you can get it
  • olive oil
  • ½ preserved lemon, seeds scooped out and finely chopped
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 200g goat’s curd or Greek yoghurt


  • STEP 1

    Put the puy lentils in a saucepan with the shallots and thyme, and cover with twice their depth in water. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 15-20 minutes. Check that the lentils don’t dry out as they cook and then drain.

  • STEP 2

    Trim the kale and cut off any thick stalks. Finely shred the leaves. Heat a little olive oil in a pan and stir in the kale. Add a little water to the pan, cover and steam gently for 5 minutes or until the kale is tender. Tip the lentils and kale into a bowl and add plenty of seasoning, the preserved lemon and juice and a little more olive oil. Fold everything together and leave it to sit for 10 minutes. Serve with the goat’s curd or yoghurt.
