These are a lot tastier than the average lentil, much easier and a whole load quicker to make. And they keep their shape and texture when cooked. They are really, really good. "Puy" refers to the part of South-Central France where these are grown (the full name is "Le Puy-en-Velay").
They are steamed in the pouch in vegetable stock. So if you microwave them for 2 minutes they are ready to serve with sausages or grilled chicken.

Summary: You could make this in 5 minutes, by using canned lentils, jarred artichokes and sun-dried tomatoes.
Or you could go homemade and cook the lentils (it only takes about 15 minutes, especially if you add in a little kombu seaweed, which speeds up cooking for beans, peas and lentils), boil fresh spring artichokes in salty water before slicing them, and roasting your tomatoes in the oven. And these can be done in parallel.
Why not try the 5 minute version for a quick lunch or packed lunch, especially if you make your lunch for the day in the morning before leaving for work, like many of us do. And try the all homemade version when you have more time on your hands.
Either way, this is absolutely delicious, warm or cold.
Serves 2 as a main or 4 as a starter.
