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.
Accompany with crusty bread
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.
