  • 150 g lentils

    1 garlic clove, peeled

    1 red onion, peeled

    1/2 apple, granny smith, cut into 1-2mm cubes

    2 celery stalks, cut into 1-2mm cubes

    A few cherry tomatoes halved and slightly crushed


    3 Tbsp olive oil

    1 lemon, juice

    Salt and pepper


Put the lentils in a saucepan and cover with 450 ml water. Add the garlic clove and 1/2 of the onion.

Bring to boil and cover with a lid. Let simmer for 20-25 min until the lentils are cooked but still have a slight bite to them. You do not want to end up with a lentil mush.

Prepare the celery and apple now. Finely chop the other half of the onion too. Once you have chopped the apple, put it in a bowl with water and lemon juice, otherwise the apple will start turning brown.

Drain the lentils and cool down under cold, running water.

Put them in a bowl, add the apples, tomatoes, onion, celery and chopped mint. Drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice to taste. Season with salt and pepper.

Key Ingredients: Garlic, Apples, Celery, Cherry Tomatoes, Olive Oil, Lemon Juice, Salt, Black Pepper
