Meal Plan 8 – Lentil salad with soy, 24p

This salad, or indeed the soup, will travel well for a packed lunch, and if you aren’t following meal plan 8, extremely variable. You could use any other pulse or grain, depending on what you have. Pearl barley is cheap at the moment and would make a tasty salad. Add sliced sausage/chorizo/salami, any other veg you fancy. Add some fine chopped parsley, rosemary, sage, basil, thyme or a mixture of whatever you like. If you’ve got any in the cupboard, a drizzle of sweet chilli sauce would go well.
