    Not only are low-fat lentils richer in protein than most other pulses, but their slightly smoky flavour makes a great base for this tasty nut roast, packed with colourful vegetables and served with a quick tomato sauce.

    A warming soup for the colder weather. Delicious served with chunks of French bread, croutons or simply a roll and butter! My Scottish relatives love it!!

    This is the best mixed-bean chilli I've tasted! I used a mix of butterbeans, red kidney beans and a small can of mixed beans.

    This is a rich and hearty vegetarian lentil curry, great as a main rather than as a side. Don't be discouraged by the ingredients list; this dish is easy dish to make, and great served with basmati rice.

    Everyone I've made this for loves it. Hearty winter soup made with fresh veg, lentils and ham shank (ham hock). The secret is using the water the ham was cooked in as stock for the soup. You can't go wrong with this soup but as with everything you will find you can easily adjust the ingredients to your own taste the more times you make it. If you're making this for a group of people it can easily be made the day before and tastes even better the following day.

    Chickpeas are simmered in a fragrant and spicy curry sauce and garnished with fresh coriander. Serve with rice for a great vegetarian midweek meal.

    This chilli is so easy to make. You can pretty much throw whatever vegetables you have into the pot.
