Now here is a healthy lunch or supper which doesn’t take long to prepare and the relatively short list of ingredients packs a wonderful array of things that are VERY GOOD FOR YOU.

It tastes even better when sat in the sunshine and if you fancy knocking this up then here is the recipe (for one): 

Glug of olive oil 
2 cloves garlic, crushed and finely chopped 
1 red onion, finely chopped 
1 red chilli (seeds left in if you want heat) 
1 stalk lemongrass, chopped. (I used dried as it is hard to source here)
100g red lentils 
200ml coconut milk 
Juice of half a lime 
S & P to taste 

Sauté onions, chilli, garlic and lemongrass in the oil in a pan for 5 minutes or so 
Add lentils, milk plus 400ml water, bring to boil then simmer for 40 minutes or until the lentil are soft (watch out that the lentils don’t stick)
Remove from the heat adding lime juice just before serving
