  • Rince the salted pork belly with cold water to remove excess salt

  • Peel the carrots and the second onion and cut them roughly.
  • Rince the green lentils with cold water then transfer them to a saucepan with 5 times their volume of cold water. Add the carrots and onion. Bring to a boil and let it cook for 20 to 25 minutes or until lentils are tender. And voilà! Serve with Dijon mustard.
