Red lentil and vegetable sauce


Today I wanted to share with you one of my all time favourite recipes. I make this so much and it is so quick and easy and such a favourite of mine. You can serve it with anything you like: rice, couscous etc. I always have mine with pasta.

1 onion, finely chopped
2 celery sticks, finely chopped
2 carrots, diced
4 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tbsp each tomato puree and balsamic vinegar
250g diced vegetables. You can you anything you like I used: courgette, red pepper and mushrooms
50g red lentils
2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes

What to do:

  • Tip the onion, celery and carrots into a large non stick pan and add 2-3tbsp of water. Cook gently, stirring often until the vegetables are soft
  • Add the garlic, tomato puree and balsamic vinegar, cook on a high heat for one minute more, add the diced vegetables, lentils and tomatoes and then bring to the boil
  • Turn the heat down to simmer then cook for about 20 minutes until all the vegetables have cooked.
  • Enjoy 🙂
