One of my most favorite food items to cook with is red lentils! And this is one of my personal favorite recipes which received many ooo’s and ahhh’s from my Gluten Free cooking class. PLUS it’s totally allowed on my Gluten Free Sugar Cleanse and also received rave reviews from the last group to go through. (FYI – next one starts on May 9th! Check out the details here…)
This recipe actually comes from a relative in Italy who kindly gave it to my Aunt, who then gave it to my mom. Not only is this meal easy, but it’s a total hand-me-down from across the sea! If you’ve never tried red lentils (or lentils in general), please give them a try. Red lentils are inexpensive, incredibly easy to cook, deliciously nutritious and very adaptable to whatever flavoring you’d love for them to have.
Lentils are a powerfully nutritious legume with plenty of protein and fiber that can hold up in your pantry when kept in a tightly sealed jar. Please buy them dry rather than the pre-cooked ones in the can since lentils don’t take nearly as long to cook as dried beans. Red lentils especially cook quite fast and make A LOT!
