Lentils, mmm lentils. These little Blighters are working there ways into one of my favourite ingredients. I remember from a young age my Mum making stews with pearl barley and lentils. I hated it, I picked out the beef and drank the gravy and left the rest. The thought of pulses, grains and the like we’re inconceivable to me as food stuffs. They weren’t meat or potato, they were painted with the same brush as vegetables and that brush had the ghastly shade of inedible. Now I can’t get enough of the lentils, maybe I should try pearl barley again. 

The jury is still out on the greens I think I like them, I wouldn’t pick them with a meal I was planning and I don’t think they were properly suited to this meal but I ate them without complaint. The duck which was cooked rare was amazing but.. the lentils made the meal the duck was good but better with them, the greens were good but only with them. The apple added a nice sweetness that was not needed but a welcome addition.
