    For a more inexpensive version, soak dried lentils for four hours before boiling them until soft. You could also use tinned brown lentils or Puy lentils, which you can buy pre-cooked in sachets. You could also choose any fresh, green vegetable that is in season, for example green beans, spinach, cabbage, peas and so on. This recipe is from Plant Based Bay by Sally Hall.
