Jewelled Rice with Lentils, Dates, Preserved Lemon and Pistachio

This fragrant dish is bursting with flavour and is deceptively easy to throw together. I love all the different elements; caramel sweetness from the dates, satisfying saltiness from the olives and a zesty citrus lift from the preserved lemons. Lots of fresh herbs and chopped nuts to finish ensures it feels both generous and utterly comforting. 

Serves 2–3
