I think it’s safe to say that I’ve never willingly eaten lentils. I have a bad habit of assuming I won’t like things that I’ve never had (a bad habit that I am trying very hard to overcome).
My sister was raving about a lentil recipe she had made earlier this week, so I decided to do a little investigating of my own. I found out that lentils are a great source of protein and an overall healthy addition to any diet. True to form, I checked out SkinnyTaste as my trusted source and found this gem. I figured the chicken component would be a safety net if the lentils themselves were a flop.
The ingredients required a bit of a scavenger hunt around the grocery store, but I found everything I needed and got to work. The recipe could not have been easier – super straightforward and simple. I am fairly particular about textures in my food, so I opted to use my food processor for the tomato and onion portion.
I mixed up some quick beer bread to have with the soup and called it a meal! J wasn’t around for dinner last night so we only have one verdict in so far, but I give this tasty soup 2 thumbs up! Delicious! Although next time I might add another tomato and a bit more onion.
This recipe made a HUGE batch (I should have halved it), so J will have ample opportunity to give it a try. In fact, we’ll probably be eating lentils for the next week :)
Do you have any lentil recipes to share? What new dishes have you tried lately?
