I’m a vegetarian who doesn’t much like beans and lentils so this receipe is an old one from when I first gave up meat and was feeling very worthy. It’s survival as a dish that we still eat even with teenagers has something to do with it’s usefulness as a store cupboard stand-by and partly to do with being something that my kids loved.
When she leaves home and needs a notebook with easy and cheap things to make and keep her fed, this will probably be included.
It is a good side dish or easy family supper with salad.
