French lentils with speck and cabbage

300 gm small green lentils, rinsed
2 tbsp olive oil
300 gm piece speck, cut into 4cm pieces
1 onion, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
150 gm red cabbage, thinly sliced
2 thyme sprigs
600 ml red wine
1 juniper berry, crushed
250 ml (1 cup) veal stock
½ cup coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley, plus extra to serve

1 Cook lentils in a saucepan of boiling water until tender (16-18 minutes). Drain and keep warm.
2 Meanwhile, heat half the oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat, add speck and turn occasionally until golden (5-7 minutes). Remove speck, add onion and garlic to pan and cook until tender (3-5 minutes). Add cabbage and thyme and stir until cabbage wilts (3-5 minutes).
3 Meanwhile, bring wine and juniper berry to the boil in a saucepan over high heat, reduce heat to medium and simmer until reduced to 100ml (8-10 minutes). Add 250ml stock and cook until reduced to 100ml (10-12 minutes). Add lentils, cabbage mixture and speck, toss to combine, scatter with parsley and serve hot.
