Comfort food from the earth

Notes on a Spanish Valley

You are going to have to trust me on this one. I know this recipe doesn’t sound particularly tasty, I know it sounds like a strange combination. plateful 8-3-14It is one of those meals we cooked with ‘what we have’. We’d eaten rather too many eggy/creamy dishes and wanted something earthy and plain. To us, as semi-veggies, that means lentils. But what to have with them? bag of potatoes 8-3-14basket of onions 8-3-14We have lots of potatoes [Pablo’s] and onions [ours], so the obvious dish was Potatoes Boulangère for which we always turn to Delia Smith’s recipe. The lentil dish is from the BBC Food website, from Nigel Slater’s ‘Simple Cooking’ series: the only difference is that we left out the bacon.

For the lentils:-
4 medium-sized onions
Olive oil
3 small carrots
½ tsp pimenton dulce
½ tsp ground cinnamon spices 8-3-141 tsp nutmeg, grated
300g puy lentils lentils - rinsed 8-3-14500ml stock
A good handful of fresh, flat-leaved parsley
