The earthiness of these gorgeous lentils is brought to the fore in a simple slow braise. If you can’t find Nolans Road lentils, you can use small green French-style lentils, but you may have to adjust the cooking time.




1.Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat, add shallot, garlic, celery and pancetta and stir occasionally until very tender (10-15 minutes), then add wine and stir to deglaze pan. Add thyme and lentils and stir to combine, then add stock, bring to the simmer, then cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until lentils are tender (30-40 minutes). Season to taste, stir in parsley and serve warm.
