Yum. I like this recipe because it's easy and you can make it with ingredients you already have on hand. It's too much for me to plan meals, I like to be able to throw stuff I have together.

Great recipe. I love lentils! I try to eat them 4-5 times a week. They work great in dense breads/muffins. Use in place of flour but expect it to be dense. Wholesome and filling. Just add some nut butter to that and you're on your way to a protein-rich meal.
