French (Puy) Lentils With Beets, (Vegan, Vegetarian)

“I got this recipe from the back of a McKenzie's lentil packet which I bought just for the recipe. It's very simple to make, filling, healthy and cheap. I reckon you could sub the puy lentils for whole brown ones. It has coriander in it but I didn't use it when I made it because I didn't have any. Feta is nice of this but if you are making it vegan leave it out but you might want to add more salt. Also add in a bay leaf when boiling the lentils”
