    1 lb (500 g) large shrimp, peeled and deveined

    1 Tbsp (15 mL) herbes de provence

    1 1/2 Tbsp (20 mL) canola oil

    1/3 cup (75 mL) dry white wine

    2 garlic cloves, minced

    1 1/2 cups (375 mL) halved cherry tomatoes

    1 1/2 cups (375 mL) cooked whole green lentils

    2 cups (500 mL) arugula

    1/4 cup (60 mL) chopped parsley

    2 Tbsp (30 mL) lemon juice

    to taste, salt and pepper

    1/2 cup (125 mL) crumbled Feta cheese


  1. Rinse the shrimp and pat dry. In a medium bowl, add herbes de provence and shrimp and gently toss until the shrimp are well coated.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add shrimp in a single layer and cook for 2 minutes. Flip and cook for another minute more, until shrimp are pink and cooked through. Remove to a plate and keep warm.
  3. Pour the wine into the skillet and scrape up all of the brown bits. When the liquid is almost reduced, add garlic and cook a couple of minutes, stirring often. Stir in cherry tomatoes and cook for 2-3 minutes, until they start to release their juices. Stir in cooked lentils and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in arugula and cook until it begins to wilt.
  4. Return shrimp to the pan and stir well. Stir in the parsley and lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Tips & Tricks:
To make your own herbes de provence, stir together: 1 Tbsp (15 mL) each of dried thyme, dried marjoram, and dried basil; 2 tsp (10 mL) dried rosemary, 1 tsp (5 mL) each of dried sage and cracked fennel seeds, and ½ tsp (2 mL) dried lavender (optional). Store in an airtight container.
Kale or spinach can be used instead of arugula.
