Lentils with Lovage

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Sauces

 Ingredients List

  • 2 Shallots; chopped
  • Butter
  • 12 oz Whole green lentils (Le Puy)
  • Handful of chopped lovage
  • 1 Sprig of thyme
  • 1 Curl of orange peel
  • Light stock or water


Soften the chopped shallots in a little butter without colouring them. Stir
in the lentils. Add a handful of chopped lovage, the sprig of thyme,
orange peel and stock or unsalted water to cover well. Simmer until tender.
Drain off and reduce the cooking liquor to make a little sauce, enriching
it with more butter and seasoning to taste. In the absence of lovage, use
the young leaves and tenderest parts of a celery heart, and season the dish
with a pinch each of celery salt, lemon zest and powdered curry spices.
