Lentil and (vegi) sausage cassoulet.
Weavers' Pie - like a shepherds' pie but lentils topped with mash.
Red lentils are a fab addition to tomato sauces
Lentil moussaka - this is a family fave here.
Lentil chilli with rice
Lentil salad

i add them to mince to bulk it out. have done puy lentils with sausages as a kind of gravy thing (you cook onions, garlic, thyme. add lentils. stir. add can consomme soup (but stock would work) and bring to boil, simmer until cooked. serve with sausages and a green veg. think it was a sainsbury take one make one
also use lentils under roasted fish for posh tea

Herby/winey lentils are nice with salmon and creme fraiche.

I put the brown ones (no need to soak overnight) in with braising steak in the slow cooker. Makes the braising steak go a lot further.
Add some onion and carrot and a veg stock cube, switch on and go out for the day.

You need quite a bit of water if putting lentils in slow cooker though to make sure it doesn't dry up when they absorb the liquid.

woodstock that lentil and feta salad sounds fab - but not enough details!!! Questions: what kind of lentils (brown, orange) do you just boil them up and then bung dressing and feta on?
