1 clove garlic
1 bouquet garni
40g butter
40g crème fraîche

Preparation
> Peel and dice the carrots.

Why it's so good...
Because lentils are yummy, the carrot gives them a slightly sweet edge, the onion adds texture and the garlic gives it a powerful taste. Serve with salad or sautéed mushrooms and voilà: there you have a whole meal packed with nutrients.
