Egg, Lentil, Raisin, Puy & Curry Sandwich

Lunch today was a sandwich I discovered on one of Hugh Fearnley-Whiitingstall’s programmes and in one of his books, Veg Every Day

What is a lentil sandwich like?

It sounds a very odd combination, (well it did to me anyway, much as I use lentils, in a sandwich?) a boiled egg, a handful of lentils, mayo to moisten and raisins to sweeten, but it is a sandwich that I have had several times now and one I really look forward to when I have planned it in for my lunch and I do urge you to try it. It makes a substantial sandwich, that really fills me up and tastes really lovely, and at 29p will fit in with a £1 a day budget.

What variations are there for a lentil sandwich

A few green leaves would be nice, spinach from the garden perhaps, or a bit of lettuce, or maybe a few herb leaves, basil or parsley

You could use any dried fruit to add that note of sweetness; sultanas, currants etc

You could use the mix in a pitta or wrap, or on top of a jkt potato, or with some crudite (carrot batons and celery perhaps)
