Last week the famous Australian chef, Simon Bryant has shared his love for lentils at a local primary school in Australia, where he taught a very successful cooking lesson.

The students were keen to learn how to cook lentils from scratch, and were equipped with all the tools in the kitchen- like measuring cups and scales- to make a rich lentil dish.

Simon is a long time pulses advocate. "I've been called a bloody hippy, lentil eater for so many years," he declared back in 2011, "I believe in economical food, I believe that we can feed more people better.” Seems like his love for pulses has done nothing but increase!

Check out a video from the lesson and Simon’s Facebook profile where he talks about the event.
