Warm lentil salad is an easy 6 ingredient weeknight meal. It takes less than 40 minutes to prepare and makes excellent leftovers.


  • 2 cans Lentils (800g)
  • 1 can Diced tomatoes (400g) – I dice them further to avoid big chunks
  • 1/2 Red onion – diced small
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 2 tbsp Cumin
  • 1 tsp Red pepper flakes (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tbsp Parsley or Cilantro – roughly chopped (for garnish)


  1. Place olive oil and onions into a non-stick pot or wok over high heat.
  2. Cook onions until almost translucent, add 1 tbsp cumin. Continue to cook onions and cumin for about 4 minutes.
  3. Add lentils and red pepper flakes. Cook for 5 minutes.
  4. Add tomatoes and remaining cumin. Reduce heat to medium and let simmer, stirring occasionally.
  5. The mixture should start to reduce, roughly 20-25 minutes.
  6. Add salt and pepper to taste. You may also want to refresh the dish with a sprinkle of cumin.
  7. Garnish with chopped parsley.
  8. Serve warm.
