Easy, Tasty Lentils

Easy Lentils

Lentils are a great source of fiber. Fiber = prebiotics. As I said before, fiber is really important for gut health.  This is a super easy but tasty lentils recipe I’ve been making.  Even my husband likes it.

What I Use:

  1. ½ c dried lentils (soak overnight)
  2. 1 small carrot (diced)
  3. 1 stalk of celery (diced)
  4. Tiny bit of onion & garlic (see the note in this post about onion/garlic during gut recovery)
  5. 1 can of chicken broth (or equivalent homemade bone broth)
  6. 1 tbs. coconut oil
  7. Seasoning of choice (simple salt & pepper or immunity blend or my current fave is Penzey’s flash forward blend)

What I Do:

  1. Heat coconut oil over medium heat.
  2. Add onion, garlic and sauté until translucent but not brown.
  3. Add carrots and celery. Sautee for a few more minutes, until softened.
  4. Add the pre-soaked lentils, stir.
  5. Add broth and seasoning, stir.
  6. Turn heat up to medium high to achieve light boil.
  7. Turn heat back down and simmer until liquid cooks down, stirring occasionally.

Voila! Easy, tasty lentils!
