White Wine Lentils with Roasted Cherry Tomatoes & ‘Crème Fraîche’

White Wine Lentils with Roasted Cherry Tomatoes & 'Crème Fraîche'

These are not just any old lentils… this is a truly delicious dish and a complete meal in itself, inspired by a traditional, Spanish recipe! Option to serve with a green salad, garlic bread and vegan bacon and/or our delicious potatas bravas recipe… but perfectly tasty on its own.

Did you know that Vegan Recipe Club is run by a charity?

We create vital resources to help educate everyone – vegan veterans, novices and the v-curious alike – about vegan food, health and nutrition; as well as the plight of farmed animals and the devastating environmental impact of farming.
