This very simple recipe was the anniversary breakfast that ML made me on Sunday. It was our sixth 'hitched' anniversary even though we have been together for 12 years.

It was comforting on that cold and crisp morning whilst we tried to decided upon what to do to celebrate our special day. It is so simple to make..the only real effort is the cooking of the red lentils the day before. I enjoyed mine with a glass of Kiwi, Apple & Lime Smoothie.

Red Onion & Chive Bagels...Lentil & Tomato Slather
