Easy Stewed Tomatoes and Lentils

Posted Dec 09 2011 11:59am
Not all the things I make turn out be this beautiful...


Dang that Cherry Crumb Cake was incredible. Or this appetizing.... Fresh Caprese Quinoa Salad

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
Ingredients
-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)
-2C water
-1/2t pepper
-1T chili powder
-1/2T cumin
-1t garlic salt

Method
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!
