A quick and easy protein dish. My four-year-old’s favorite!
- 1 cup red lentils
- 2 1/4 cups water
- 1/2 – 1 cup chopped celery (2 stalks)
- 1/4 – 1/2 cup chopped onion (1 tiny onion or half a medium onion)
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp sage
- 1 tsp thyme
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
Rinse the red lentils well then drain. (I just do this in the pot with a few changes of water, carefully pouring out the water each time.) Add all remaining ingredients and simmer (with the lid on) for about 20 – 25 minutes or until the lentils get mushy and fall apart.
Serve over brown rice. (I use 1 cup uncooked brown rice, then cooked, to go with this meal.)
