This is the meal I make when I can’t be bothered to cook but don’t want to eat junk food or take out. This healthy plate of food is ready in just 60 seconds making it brilliant for a busy weeknight.

Obviously it’s ready in just 1 minutes so there are cheats involved. To throw together this super fast plate of food you’ll need a sachet of Merchant Gourmet Puy lentils, for preference I choose the ones with sun dried tomatoes and basil.

In the time it takes for the lentils to cook in the microwave, open a bag of mixed salad leaves and add a handful to the plates and toss over a few sun dried tomatoes from a jar. Once the lentils are cooked divide them between the two plates and crumble over the feta cheese.

That’s it, all ready to eat. You could add some crusty bread and a glass of nice red wine if you wanted to.
