Lentil Delightfulness

Let’s see. According to my records, Wednesday is Tip Day. (As in helpful hints, not monetary compensation.) (Although…) (Nah, forget it.) Now I’m the first to tell you I don’t hand out tips wily nily, other than “Don’t Smile at a Crocodile,” or “Don’t Wear Granny Underwear with Low-Rise Jeans.” (Wish I had taken THAT advice yesterday.) However, every now and then I do find I have something useful to share, which you might find delightful and awesome.


Today it’s a recipe. My tip? MAKE IT.




Lentil Mash


Saute some garlic, chopped onions and shredded carrots.


Add 2, 3 or 4 cups of cooked lentils (I use Trader Joe’s pre-cooked lentils available in the refrigerator case)


Add one can of diced tomatoes.


Salt and pepper to taste.


Let simmer.


Have it as a side dish or over brown rice.




You didn’t want measurements and stuff, did you?


I really hope not. I’m the kind of person who dices vegetables in the palm of her hand and uses wine glasses as measuring cups.
