My Grandma's Lentils by Sonja Bajic

Paris, Ile de France, FR


Long before I have known how to prepare dhals, tabboulehs and lentil salads...I knew how to make my grandma's lentils! We always ate it with meatballs (rarely with sausages) and there has always been a box or two of lentils laying somewhere around our home pantry...together with cans of tomatoes, garlics and bay leaves. In times like these with those simple quintessential pantry ingredients you can create my Grandma's magic in less then 45 minutes (especially if you haven't forgotten to soak them the night before). Bon appetite or "prijatno" - as my grandma would put it!
