Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1

Before you begin...

Get all your ingredients and equipment ready

Skim through these steps, then wash your fruit and veg

Note: Equipment and pan sizes vary. Make sure you cook food thoroughly (even if it takes you a little longer than 10 mins)

2

Now, let's get started!

Heat a large, dry, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the smoked streaky bacon to the pan and cook for 3-4 min on each side or until golden and crisp

Once the bacon is crisp, add it to a plate lined with kitchen paper and set aside, reserving the pan

3

Meanwhile, drain the canned lentils

Cut the avocado[s] in half lengthways, around the stone[s]

Remove the stone[s] using a teaspoon

Scoop the avocado out of the skin[s] using a spoon and slice it finely, lengthways

4

Return the pan to a medium-high heat with any remaining oil and add the drained lentils along with half of the chilli jam and a pinch of salt and pepper

Mix it all together and cook for 1-2 min until warmed through

5

Whilst the lentils are cooking, add the remaining chilli jam to a bowl along with the cider vinegar and 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] olive oil and give it a good mix up – this is your chilli jam dressing

6

Transfer the cooked bacon to a board and chop roughly

7

Add the hot lentils to a bowl with the rocket leaves and half of the chopped bacon and give everything a good mix up – this is your lentil & bacon salad
