|This delicious recipe is from Jenny Chandler's fantastic new Green Kids Cook, a cookbook that teaches the cooks of the future how to eat well, look after themselves and think about the planet. It's a great way to cook our British-grown lentils in a typical Syrian style.|
Lentils are amazing little seeds that grow inside a pod. They’re packed with the protein, nutrients and fibre that we need to survive, while the plants themselves are great at keeping the soil they grow in healthy, too. Good for us, good for the planet!
It’s worth cooking up a batch of the slow-fried onions on their own, to go alongside roasted veggies, into sandwiches, to top pizzas, and to stir into soups and dals.

This easy and versatile dish makes the most of seasonal fruit for a superb late summer dessert - or even a whole meal! It's especially lovely made with little yellow mirabelle plums, which have a wonderful honeydew sweetness.
