Bar-Bee-Que Lentils

by KalaLea on August 20, 2011 • Posted in Recipes

Recipe by KalaLea K

Serves 4-6 country singers

Lentils cook faster than any other bean and there’s no need to soak them before cooking. It’s my quick protein fix.

You will need:
3-4 cups of water
1 large cup of dried lentils
1 large Vidalia onion
2-3 garlic cloves
1 12 oz. can of diced fire roasted tomatoes
1/2 green pepper
1/2 red pepper
2 TBSPs yellow mustard
1 generous TBSP of blackstrap molasses
1/4 jalepeno

Recipe & Photography by Dar Riser

Serves 3-4 healthy eaters

  • During my farm stay in Bahia, Brazil years ago, I read the 1977 book, How to Save Your Own Life by Erica Jong. The other day I came across the notes I copied from the book: 1) Renounce useless guilt 2) Don't make a cult of suffering 3) Live in the NOW (or at least the soon) 4) Always do the thing you fear the most; courage is an acquired taste like caviar 5) Trust ALL joy 6) If the evil eye fixes you in its gaze; look elsewhere 7) Get ready to be 87 years old. So splendid. Happy Free Friday!! #selflove #sunshine #books #1977 #ericajong #ridingthewave #onlyyoucansaveyourownlife
