Ingredients

For the Carrots

  • 200 ml Vegetable Stock
  • 2 Dilmah Premium Ceylon Tea Bags
  • 10 Dutch Carrots - tops off and cleaned
  • 15 g Butter
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • Pinch of Salt

For the Lentils

  • 1 cup Puy Lentils
  • 500 ml Vegetable Stock
  • 1 Stem Celery - cut in half
  • 10 Parsley Stalks - cut below the leaves
  • 3 Thyme Sprigs
  • 3 Rosemary Stalks
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • ¼ Onion Chopped
  • 1 Clove Garlic - crushed and chopped
  • 2 tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 Lemon Zest - only grated
  • 20 Parsley Leaves - chopped finely
  • Big Pinch of Salt

Finish

  • 1 Scoop of Sour Cream

Methods and Directions

  • Wrap the thyme, rosemary, parsley and bay leaves in the 2 celery halved stems with twine.
  • Wash the lentils a couple of times in running water to remove any dust, or undesirables. Put the lentils into a pot and cover with the vegetable stock. Put wrapped herbs in celery, along with the chopped onion and garlic.
  • Bring to boil, lower to a simmer and scrape off the bubbly brown stuff at the top and discard it. Slowly cook away for 20-30 mins until they are nice and soft, but still holding together.
  • In the meantime, bring 200 ml vegetable stock to boil and pour into a pot with the Dilmah Premium tea bags and let steep for 5 mins. Put the carrots into a frying pan with the butter and sugar, add the stock and cover with a cartouche. Slowly cook out the carrots until the liquid (except butter) has completely evaporated, and the carrots have become soft.
  • With the lentils, strain the liquid, take out the celery wrap and place the lentils in a bowl. Add the vinegar lemon zest, parsley, salt and mix.
  • For plating, spoon the lentils onto a serving plate, top with the carrots and spoon over the sour cream. Sprinkle some parsley over the top and finish with salt.
