In a hurry? We’ve got the perfect dish for dinner or a side. You only need five minutes of prep time to make Garlic & Lemon Lentils. We love this as a main dish with bread and salad, but it’s also a great side for a variety of proteins.
- 1 cup lentils
- 4 cups vegetable broth
- 3 crushed garlic cloves
- juice and zest of 1 lemon
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 tsp ground white pepper
- 1/4 cup roughly-chopped parsley
Sort lentils to remove any small stones or dirt. Thoroughly rinse in cold water and place in a 3-quart pan and cover with the vegetable broth. Bring to a low boil, place lid of pan and gently simmer for 15-20 minutes until lentils are tender but still hold their shape.
Drain lentils and return to pan. Add remaining ingredients to lentils and stir thoroughly. Serve hot or refrigerate and serve cold.
