The Lowly Lentil

We are all into eating healthy these days. Time was when the word vegetarian described some weird type of person! My diet includes a lot of vegetarian meals. But lentils? It wasn't too long ago that I turned my nose up at "those things."

Now I know better! It took a trial and error approach but I finally found a few lentil recipes that I honestly enjoy.

My blog friend, Granny, find her blog, "grannysgarden" on the right side of my blog, e-mailed this recipe to me and it is very good. Try it, you'll like it! And to learn more about the health benefits of lentils, click here

Here is the recipe:

1 cup lentils
2 cups water
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 small onion, chopped
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients and bake, covered, in a 350 degree oven for about an hour and a half.

Again, thanks to Granny in Australia for this winner!

  1. That looks REALLY good. I used to get those box lentil/rice packets (Far East? Near East? can't think of the name of them but they make a number of pilafs at the grocers). Those were REALLY good in a pita with some yoghurt dill sauce.
