Lentils

Yum! Lentils are often cast aside as a ‘poor man’s food’. But don’t let their bad reputation fool you. These Legumes are super healthy and delicious. Plus, they are quite cheap to buy! Our Lentil recipes are easy to make and use this ordinary grain to make an extraordinary meal. I love lentils because they cook up so quickly and do not require any soaking time as other beans do. They are great added to soups or blended into your favorite sauce. It can make dishes more hearty and give a nice depth of flavor that you may be missing!

Lentil Cabbage Soup

FacebookPinterestStumbleUponGoogle+TumblrRedditShare

I like to make soups. I like to make soups out of leftover veggies and pantry items. I like to throw my leftover veggies and pantry items in a crock pot and cook all day until dinner.

I had half a bag of lentils, a cabbage head, one bell pepper, one carrot, and some celery…soup anyone?

Delicious Rating: Any crock-pot meal is a super easy recipe. I love to start the crock-pot in the morning for dinner to be ready around dinner time or start the crock pot before I go to bed. It is such a nice feeling to wake up to the smell of something wonderful! This soup is full of healthy stuff. Add more if you would like!

Fettuccine & Lentil Sauce

I know. I have said it countless times before. I love Pasta. I could die after eating any pasta with any sauce. Like Seriously, For Reals.

This is a very delicious pasta recipe that is Vegan! Yay! I wanted more protein and fiber in some of my vegan dishes and decided to sneak in some lentils in easy recipes like pasta & sauce. It isn’t really sneaking in lentils if they are the star of the show but you know what I mean!

Delicious Rating: Yummy Yummy time right here! Easy recipe to cook and delicious to eat. The lentils add such a depth of flavor in the sauce that I haven’t had in even the meatiest tomato sauce. For me pasta is super addicting to eat so if you are truly a pasta lover you will find this dish gone before you know it! Add in parsley while the sauce is simmering for an extra spice and flavor.

Hot & Spicy Lentil Soup

There has been a lot of changes to my diet and eating habits over the last few month. More fruits & veggies, less junk & processed food, portion control…you know, those sort of things. But I also have been trying to utilize food I have already at home to create a delicious meal. I succeeded with the Hot & Spicy Lentil Soup. I love soup and my DH loves soup as well. Something about eating hot soup in hot weather really is refreshing. This delicious dish of mine is being shared in my 2nd (yes, I am going to count) food blog event! “My Legume Love Affair” is organized by The Well-Seasoned Cook and hosted this month by Kannada Cuisine. How exciting!

Delicious Rating: This easy recipe meal anyone can cook, from beginner to top chef. The spices will fill your home with such a wonderfully delicious aroma that you will want to cook it again. Some of the spices are Indian based but the soup didn’t really taste Indian at all. Reduce the Cayenne Pepper and cut out the serranos for a more mild but flavorful soup.
