About this recipe: This recipe was originally one of my wife's but over time I've tweaked it slightly and made it my own. It's one of our go to dishes when we need something quickly or can't decide what we want to cook. Not the prettiest of dishes but it's tasty, filling and can have a nice chilli kick. Serves 2
* I sometimes stop the cooking process at this point and leave the pan to stand (covered) as it means I can start this dish in the late afternoon giving me a little more flexibility if we're running late (or early) - I also find that the flavours develop a little more. - It can also be frozen at this point - the peas are added once thawed making for a very quick and convenient meal. **You can use dried lentils if you have the time and inclination to prepare them, use between 120 - 135 g - if memory serves but you may want to double check.
