It was almost summer - so a summery dinner

It was a lovely sunny day in Tod - one of the very few we have had this year.  Infact, it seems to have been grey and wet since October with barely a break.  So, in honour of the improved weather, I choose to chuck together a summery type dinner.  It is, however, still Yorkshire, so an actual salad would have been too cold.

Once again, all ingredients available from Tod market ... from me in the Mediterranean Pantry:-

Olive oil
Greek salad seasoning
Calabrian fish crust mix

From Garry the veg:-

Spring onions
Green beans
Cherry tomatoes
Salad leaves

1.  Cook rice (1 cup rice, 2 cups water - bring to boil, lid on, turn right down and leave for 15 minutes).
2.  At the same time boil the lentils.
3.  Sautee spring onions and garlic in olive oil (quite a lot of olive oil), add a pinch of greek salad. seasoning.
4.  Add chopped beans and cherry tomatoes, Stir occassionally until its all cooked through, about 12 minutes.
5.  Meanwhile - put some calabrian fish crust mix in a bag - add sliced courgette.  Shake until all of the pieces are coated.  Fry these in a hot griddle pan, for a couple of minutes on each side.
6.  Finish the rice and lentils by frying onions in olive oil, then fold the rice and drained lentils through.
7.  Serve with salad leaves in a simple dressing (balsamic vinegar and olive oil for us).
