Lentils are relatively quick and easy to prepare. These lentils readily absorb a variety of wonderful flavors from other foods and seasonings, are high in nutritional value and are available throughout the year. Lentils can be used in a number of dishes including salads, casseroles, hamburgers and breads. Prepare as follows for a great meatless taco meal:
2 c water
1 c lentils
Boil lentils for 10 to 15 minutes until tender. Do not salt your beans when cooking as it causes them to become tough. Once tender, add
1T Mill Creek taco seasoning (under Healthy tab)
salt to taste
Serve with chips, lettuce, tomato, onion, cheese, and salsa!
