And let's face it...my breakfast doesn't always look this incredible: Simple Overnight Oats with a Cherry on Top
Where am I going with this? Okay, you see. I get a little bit self conscious when I post chili/soup/lentil recipes because the photos never do its taste justice.
I promise you, this dish is beyond delicious. It's very similar to a vegetarian chili minus the beans. I have been on a chili powder/cumin kick lately, and literally add it to everything.
Easy Stewed Tomatoes and Lentils (g/f)
*yields 4 servings
-1C lentils, washed (I used Bob's Red Mill)
-1 can diced tomatoes (I use Del Monte No Salt Added)
-2T garbanzo bean flour or cornstarch (thickening agent)
-1T chili powder
-1t garlic salt
In a medium sized pot, bring all ingredients, except garbanzo bean flour, to a rolling boil. Then, reduce heat and simmer on low until most of the water is absorbed. It will take about 15-20 minutes. Then, add in garbanzo bean flour to thicken the remaining liquid and cook uncovered for an additional 2 minutes.
This is delicious served as is in a big ol' bowl. or....
Wabam! On top of spinach with a scoop of low fat cottage cheese, plum tomatoes, and balsamic vinegar! nom nom nom. This was my lunch for the past three days :)
This girl has another laid back weekend. Lots of paper writing to do. I still can't believe the semester ends next Wednesday! Where the heck has time gone?
Have a lovely weekend!
Are you a lentil lover?
