lovely lentils

Lentils contain high levels of protein and iron!!! They are favourites among vegetarian dishes because these little legumes are full of flavour and can be served both hot and cold. They bring a nutty, peppery and rustic appeal to any dish and leave you feeling satisfied and full. Today I incorporated a rainbow of ingredients to create a Delicious lentil dish for dinner, and leftovers that can be eaten up as a cold salad. yummy!
1.dice: carrots, mini red potatoes, red/yellow pepper, mushrooms, red onions, tomatoes, peas, and parsley
2. first saute carrots and red potatoes in olive oil, adding S&P, chili flakes, and ginger
3. next, add onions, mushrooms, and parsley
4. lastly, add peas and tomatoes and Lentils
5. saute for a few more minutes, mix, and add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and grated Parmesan cheese
6. enjoy

  5. i'm so new at this, i'm still jumping up and down from getting a submission on tastespotting. hello. and THANK YOU!!!

  6. opps!!! I put the lentils in with the peas and tomatoes (they go in last...since they were from a can, they are already cooked.) saute and stir just enough to coat them in the flavours and warm.
