How to make it

  • Put the lentils in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat and boil gently for 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  • In a heavy frying pan cook the bacon until crisp, then transfer bacon to a plate to drain on paper towels. Pour off all oil except 1 tbsp.
  • Stir the onion and carrot into the fat in the pan and cook for 2 – 3 minutes until just softened.
  • Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute, then stir in the tomatoes, Italian herbs, garlic salt, white pepper, bay leaf and lentils. Add the broth and cover the pan.
  • Cook over a medium-low heat for 35 minutes then add the broccoli and cook another 10 minutes, until the lentils and broccoli are tender, stirring occasionally. Add a little more broth or water to the pan if the lentils get dry.
  • Uncover the pan and allow any excess liquid to evaporate. Add the reserved bacon pieces and serve hot.
