Its good to build up a staple of go to simple meals and this is why I love these creamy lentils. Its protein rich but I love to add a piece of seasoned fried fish to it for a complete meal.



1 tbsp olive oil

1 medium onion 

2 garlic cloves

2 tbsp  mixed herbs

1 cup  beluga lentils

½ cup cherry tomatoes

3 cups of stock

1 cup spinach (optional)

1 tsp salt for final seasoning


  • Dice onion and garlic
  • Heat your oil and gently fry the ingredients until soft in a medium frying pan
  • Add the mixed herbs and gently fry to release flavours
  • Add the lentils, tomatoes and stock
  • Reduce the heat and let the lentils simmer until water is reduced and lentils are soft to taste
  • If you would like to add spinach, stir in now until wilted
  • Season the final cooked lentils with salt
  • Transfer to serving plates


  • I love this dish also with many peas, beans and pulses
  • Keep the water when you steam vegetables in the fridge and you will have your own stock to hand

This dish can be served with my red snapper recipe or equally good on its own
