Lentil Lovin'

I mentioned before that I'd be sharing some ideas for thrifty and healthy lunches with you. Here's another simple but tasty option that can feed you for a whole week: lentils!

*I apologize in advance for the not-nice photos. Our nice camera was charging, so I snapped these with my cell phone!

You can literally adapt lentils for any taste- I love 'em with some curry spices, sriracha and crispy, chopped veggies. 
Whip up some vinaigrette and serve with a poached egg over baby greens for a light and refreshing breakfast. Seriously- try it! This breakfast makes my WHOLE day better. 

Sprinkle on some cumin, chili powder and paprika. Add in diced tomatoes, jalapeno, cilantro and tuck it in to a tortilla for a yummy and filling lunch or dinner that you can make in just a few minutes. 

Basic Lentils

Take a cup of lentils, pick through for any rocks and rinse in a fine sieve. 

Pour the lentils into the bottom of a sauce pot and cover with two inches of cold water.
Bring to a boil, cover and reduce to a simmer. Cook for about 20 minutes, or until your lentils are completely tender. 

What do you do with lentils? Are you a lentil lover like us?? 


  1. I LOVE lentils! I eat them on toast every morning :)
