15 Min


10 Min


Stove Top


2 c
lentils, cooked
chopped peppers red yellow and orange
1 large
chopped onion
1 clove
garlic minced
1 can(s)
chopped petite tomatoes 14oz
2 Tbsp
chili powder
1 Tbsp
salt & pepper
fresh cilantro

Directions Step-By-Step

I do the quick soak cook lentils according to directions but instead of using water I use stock. For this recipe I use vegetable stock.
In a frying pan soften onions, garlic and peppers in olive oil with salt and pepper.
I also use these peppers and onions for toppings.
When peppers and onions softened add can of petite chopped tomatoes, lentils and spices let simmer for a few minutes. Great hot or cold.
Favorite way to eat is on top of a hot dog in place of chili. I also top salads cold! Next will use for nachos!
