  • 3/4 cup red lentils, dried
  • 1 can kidney beans, drained and rinsed, 1 can = 15.5oz)
  • 1 bell pepper, red
  • 3-4 spring onions
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • If using dried red lentils then prepare according to package instructions (or just add 1 part red lentils to 1.5 parts of water with a little salt in a pot. Bring it to a boil and then let the lentils simmer for about 12-15 minutes depending on how soft you like them. Season with a little more salt, when the lentils are cooked. Alternatively you can cook them in veggie broth for extra flavour).
  • Meanwhile cut the spring onions and bell pepper. Also grate the garlic.
  • Get a big bowl and throw in all the ingredients, including the lentils and beans.
  • Finally, if using, add the tomato sauce (as much as you like), give it a stir, do a taste test and, if necessary, season one last time with salt and pepper.
  • Ready!
