Lentils are an excellent source of protein, dietary fibre and B vitamins. This nutritious salad with a hint of lemon goes beautifully with pieces of tuna, salmon or chicken tossed through it. 1 cup (250 g/9 oz) green lentils, rinse well 1 litre (35 fl oz/4 cups) salt-reduced vegetable stock 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1 teaspoon ground coriander 1 bay leaf 1 cup (185 g/61/2 oz) brown basmati rice, rinse well 1 tablespoon sunflower seeds 3 tablespoons finely chopped leek or shallots 1 medium zucchini, diced 1 clove garlic, crushed 1/2 cup (100 g/31/2 oz) corn kernels, canned 2 teaspoons organic lemon zest Juice of 1/2 lemon 1 tablespoon cold pressed flaxseed handful of crumbled feta Soak rice in water for 30 minutes before cooking (for improved texture and reduced cooking time).
