Serves 50. Start soaking lentils the night before.
1.5kg dried whole lentils or moth beans (any sort)
500g green beans, chopped
500g frozen peas
3 red capsicum, diced (yellow or orange will add just as much colour and flavour)
2-3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons paprika
Salt and pepper
2-4 tablespoons mixed herbs (or any fresh herbs)
- Soak the lentils overnight, then rinse.
- Cook them in boiling water for approximately 20 mins until cooked but not mushy.
- Drain and rinse again.
- Place in a large bowl.
- Steam the green beans and peas until just tender (don’t overcook)
- Mix everything together and adjust seasoning to taste.
Serve either warm or cold.
Any leftovers can be used as a base for lentil patties or soup the next day.
