I used green lentils de puy instead of brown because I like them a lot
There was a shotglass of deep, luscious pea and ham soup, an impeccable smoked-mackerel pâté and a very effective salad of ham hock and puy lentils.
Best of these savoury dishes is lamb, both as medium-rare fillet and as braised shoulder, on puy lentils and roasted winter vegetables.
The red ones will fall apart, providing some thickening, but the lentils de puy should hold their shape.
I mixed them with lentilles du puy the lovely little green French beauties prepared in a seasoned vegetable broth laced with lemon thyme.

I tried this recipe with some organic du puy lentils I bought the other week – HEAVENLY.
