- 1 cup Dry Lentils (or to save time, use 1 package of Trader Joe’s Steamed Lentils or 1-16 oz can, rinse and drained)
- 8 Plum Tomatoes, chopped
- Juice of 1 lime
- 3 Garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
- 2 Avocados, sliced
1. To prepare lentils: Rinse lentils well in cold water, then bring to a boil in 2 cups of water. Lower heat and simmer uncovered for 30-45 minutes, until lentils are tender. Drain and set aside.
2. Heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic and sauté for 1-2 minutes. Add cooked lentils, tomatoes, and lime juice. Allow to heat through, then top with cilantro and avocado slices. Serve over brown rice, quinoa, or any other whole grain. Enjoy!
