Honey Baked Lentils
1 cup lentils
2 cups water
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp ginger
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
salt & pepper to taste
Combine the above in a baking dish, cover and bake at 350* until tender (~ 1.5 hours).
That's it! How much simpler can it get? You can pop it in the oven shortly after breakfast and have a hearty, filling lunch that will keep you going all afternoon. Or serve as a savory side dish with dinner.
What our family has to say:
* Momma: Two thumbs up! Healthy, simple, inexpensive and tasty! I can see myself making this quite frequently.
* Abbie: Bravely tried it, but didn't like it. She had a PB&J sandwich right beforehand, so she just might have been full.
* Isaiah: Absolutely loved it, and came back for seconds and thirds! He can be pretty picky with vegetables, so I'm glad we can add this nutritious food to his diet.
