Lentil Veggies


Hey friends! It has been some quite some time since my last blog and for some reason or another I have been inspired to start back up! So this is a go to meal for my man and I- we make it about once a week, mainly because it is so cheap, healthy and easy!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cans of organic lentils
  • 1 bag of frozen peppers and onions
  • 2 tablespoons of olive/canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons of veggie paste
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin
  • 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Steps

  1. Put olive/canola oil in a skillet over medium heat and add frozen veggies, stir frequently.
  2. Once veggies have started to thaw add veggie paste and stir around so that it “melts.”
  3. Add the lentils and stir.
  4. Add the cumin, garlic powder, cayenne pepper and salt and pepper.
  5. Stir well and let simmer over low heat for about 5-10 minutes to let the flavors combine!

Side note: As far as spices go, I have never been one to actually measure out spices, make sure to continuously taste your food as you go.

Rule of thumb: You can always add more but you can’t take back!
