We set The Cook & Him
a challenge with this one, but the vegan lasagne they created is the perfect marriage for our British-grown Whole Olive Lentils
and fermented Fava Bean Umami Paste
. Packed with flavour, it can be made ahead of time, perfect for feeding a crowd or batch cooking for midweek dinners.
In this high days and holidays dal from Northern India, enriched with butter and cream, Jenny Chandler
substitutes British whole lentils
and red haricot beans
for the traditional black urad dal and red kidney beans. As Jenny says, "the result is just heaven", perfect as a stand alone main dish with a little rice or a flatbread alongside or great as a player in an indulgent spread.
