Ingredients for French Lentils with Asparagus and Shallots
- 1 cup (200 g) of French lentils
- 3 cups (750 ml) of water
- 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
- 3- 4 small shallots, skins removed & thinly sliced juice of 1 lemon

How to Make French Lentils with Asparagus and Shallots
- Rinse the lentils well under running water. In a small pan, bring the lentils and water to a rolling boil, stir, reduce heat, and simmer for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the lentils are tender. Season the lentils with a few pinches of salt. Drain off any remaining liquid and set aside.
- Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the shallots and cook over medium-low heat for 15 minutes, stirring frequently.
- Raise the heat to medium-high and add the lemon juice and asparagus. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes, until the asparagus brightens and is easily pierced with a fork.
- Add the cooked lentils to the pan, season to taste, and heat through.
- Serve warm, topped with sliced avocado and lemon wedges.
