Serves 8 | Prep Time | Cook Time 30


1 cup brown lentils
8 oz. green beans, cut into 2-in segments
1 cup fresh or frozen peas
1/4 olive oil (or hazelnut oil)
2 tbsp sherry vinegar (I used 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar and 1 tablespoon lemon juice)
1 shallot, chopped (I just used onion)
black pepper
optional: goat cheese (4 oz crumbled)

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and salt it.

add the lentils and boil (reduced to medium) 7-10 min (when the lentils are just beginning to soften.

Add green beans and cook 5 more min.

Add peas and cook 1 more min.

When lentils are tender, not mushy, transfer everything to a colander and rinse under cold running water and drain well.

Transfer the lentil mixture to a large bowl and add oil, vinegar, shallot and plenty of salt and pepper.

You can make a day ahead and refrigerate. bring to room temp before adding optional goat cheese right before serving.
