One of the most successful partnerships I have come across is that of lentils and fresh green peas. I have made a salad of them many times, but much prefer serving them warm. The earthiness of the lentils is flattered by the fresh green peas. I use a good sharp British goat's cheese with this, or sometimes bacon or grilled salmon.
75g small green lentils, such as de Puy
190g shelled peas
A small bunch of parsley
Olive oil - 1 tablespoon and a little extra
1 tablespoon lemon juice
200g goat's cheese
