About this Recipe

Puy lentils, also called French lentils are often used in soups and salads and need to be washed well before use. Substitute or add to any of the vegetables included – cauliflower, peas and aubergine all work well in a Thai curry.  This is delicious served with brown rice or cauliflower rice.
