Quick Lamb and Lentil Stew- with Spelt Bread

Quick Lamb & Lentil Stew

Ended up going back to my laptop tonight to work late , but took a therapeutic break to pound some bread , though I use the food processor to mix , pounding dough before a 25 minute prove calms me no end and also warms me up its amazing how cold you can get sitting still at your desk .Having the oven on in a studio flat also means I don’t have to put the heating on so its win-win .

The bread takes 45 minutes to bake at 200degC so it shared the oven with a pot of quick Lamb and lentil stew slow-baked lamb about 100g in with a handful of beluga lentils , a can of tomatoes , pinch of dried mixed herbs- they pack a punch)

When I finished work a bowl of lamb and lentil stew , dressed a little fresh thyme out the freezer with freshly baked bread was a fantastic reward . Thats the last of the lamb for a little bit , still plenty in the freezer though.
