Recipe: Honey Lentils

posted in: All Posts, Recipes | 4

Here is a recipe guaranteed to warm you up this winter.  Super easy, healthy and inexpensive too!

A very satisfying dish, my family describes this as tasting like an entire Thanksgiving Dinner all rolled into one scrumptious casserole.  Delicious served over quinoa or rice, or eaten as a dip with corn chips or pitas.*

lentils

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup red lentils
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 Tsp ground ginger (1 Tbsp fresh grated)
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup veggie of choice, grated (carrot, daikon radish, turnip, sweet potato, eggplant are examples of some that I've used)
  • salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350°.  Combine all ingredients in a casserole dish.  Bake for 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours or longer depending on your thickness preference.  I have found that the longer you cook this, the thicker it becomes.

Yum!

    Lentils are also commonly used in Ethiopia in a stew-like dish called kik, or kik wot, one of the dishes people eat with Ethiopia’s national food, injera flat bread. Yellow lentils are used to make a nonspicy stew, which is one of the first solid foods Ethiopian women feed their babies.-“.*
