Sun-Dried Tomato & Lentil Salsa

“We’re great fans of lentils, both for their nutritional value and their taste. This salsa is perfect in summer, especially as an accompaniment to a salad or pasta”
The Gate Vegetarian Cookbook, Adrian & Michael Daniel

Ingredients:

150g Puy lentils
A little olive oil
1 banana shallot, or 2-3 ordinary shallots, finely chopped

3-4 spring onions, chopped
