  • 1 cup green French lentils
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 small golden beets
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon Herbes de Provence
  • 1 tablespoon sherry wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon finely minced shallots
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped chervil or parsley, for garnish


Cook lentils in boiling salted water for about 20 minutes or until tender. Refresh under cold water and drain well.

Toss lentils and beets together and season with sherry wine vinegar, shallot, salt and pepper. Garnish with chervil or parsley.
