French Lentilles Cuisinées

The full title should be French Lentilles Cuisinées, as cuisinées simply means cooked, but we like simple! This provincial classic is a popular choice in France and is typically served as a vegetable through the winter. We have given the recipe an authentic twist by adding sweet chestnuts. High in starch but low in fat, the chestnut makes a good substitute for potatoes and from its early origins in Mediterranean countries, it is used in stews, soups, and as flour to make delicious bread and pasta.

  • Suitable for vegetarians and vegans
  • High fibre
  • Low fat
  • Low salt
  • Gluten and dairy free
  • 1 pot = 2 portions of veg

Super Supper Idea

Serve the warmed cuisinées with a creamy root mash – we’ve used parsnip and potato. If you are partial to sausages, then cuisinées, mash and sausages make the perfect supper.
