I love this recipe because it's quick, healthy, tasty and I can use items stored in the larder as well as regular vegetables (i.e. I don't have to make a special trip to the supermarket to search out ingredients). Lentils are also filling so it's great if you are trying to watch your waist! It's a child-friendly recipe especially if you chop the vegetables up finely.
