Lentil Breakfast Pots

Lentil Breakfast Pots

“These lentils are a riff on the great British staple of baked beans and in common with the beans, my lentils aren’t baked at all. The tomatoey lentils are rich, comforting and delicious, at their most simple they are divine on hot toast, caught just after it leaps from the toaster, spread thickly with butter that melts and mingles with the saucy lentils. But as you can see in the photo, the lentils can become the chameleon of your breakfast fare as they are happy to provide the ballast for everything from smoked salmon to sun-dried tomatoes. “
