Recipe by Joey O'Hare of @joeyscooking.
I was craving something warming and a little more filling when I made this, something along the lines of a risotto, however I tend to prefer lentils to rice. The addition of blue cheese makes this recipe rich, indulgent, and utterly delicious; the punchy, citrusy pesto cuts through this richness such that the overall dish does not feel heavy. It’s a fantastic Spring supper!
The recipe below makes a generous supper for 2 people; the pesto recipe yields more than is needed for two, but any surplus will keep happily in the fridge for a week.
