Ingredients

Directions

  • Preheat the broiler until hot. Place the peppers and garlic on a baking tray, drizzle with oil, and broil until soft and slightly charred. Set aside peppers in a bowl covered with plastic wrap. When the peppers have cooled, peel the skins off, remove the stem and seeds and slice.
  • Mix together the peppers, garlic, lentils, sun-dried tomato pesto, olives, onion and basil leaves. Chill and scatter over the watercress, carrot and celery.
