Tomato Lime Lentils

Serves 4:

  • 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!
