lentils and mint tea

This has become my near-daily lunchtime ritual: lentils, harissa, wedges of fluffy bread, and sweet mint tea. Sometimes I mix it up with a ridiculously tasty minced meat and egg sandwich, a chicken tajine, or couscous on Fridays, but I always come back to the lentils— I suppose they remind me of dal a little.

Moroccan mint tea is a wonderful treat, and I've found that it is best enjoyed towards the end of a meal. It's so pretty to look at too— see the colour the sunlight turns as it passes through the leaves?

One could easily get lost in that green.
