Squids stuffed with lentils and jerusalem artichokes are an ideal light meal, especially for those who want to eat healthy after the culinary feast. 

Lentils are legumes that should be eaten throughout the year and not only during Christmas holidays! They are delicious in soups, combined with meat or fish.

    4. Add 40 grams of lentils, a pinch of salt and mix.
    5. Stuff the squid and close the ends with toothpicks.
    6. Pour 2 tablespoons of oil into the pan, add garlic and chili pepper, brown for a minute, then add the squids, cook for 5 minutes, then turn them and cook for another 5 minutes.
    7. Add the remaining lentils and allow to gain flavour for 6-7 minutes and serve
    Notes

    Ensure that you do not over-stuff the squids. Do not use too much olive oil, if you use Risolì Granito Gran Gourmet non-stick pan squids will not stick on the pan.
