Lentils, particularly French green lentils, have pretty much become the staple go-to food in my home. They only take 15 minutes on the stovetop. And I’ll let you in on a little secret. If you get sprouted green lentils, they’re even quicker to cook up, clocking in at around 5 minutes. Add some spinach, cherry tomatoes, and red onion slices and you have yourself a perfect afternoon dish.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup French Green lentils
  • 3 cups homemade vegetable broth
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1 cup baby spinach leaves
  • 1/4 red onion, sliced
  • 12-14 cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil

DIRECTIONS:

 
  1. Bring homemade broth and lentils to a boil on high heat over the stovetop. Lower to medium heat and keep on a simmer for 15 minutes. Add a pinch of sea salt about 2 minutes before taking off stovetop.
  2. Drain any excess water from lentils and place in a bowl. Toss with the remainder of the ingredients and serve.
