Slow Cooker Taco Lentils

This is one of my family's favorite dishes! This can be served over polenta or rice, and of course makes a great taco filling. You can also make it into more of a stew by combining it with diced tomatoes. You can adjust the spices to taste--the recipe is calculated using standard chili powder, but if you make your own (salt-free) blend and use no salt added tomatoes, you can make a low sodium version!Submitted by: AASLP___

Koshari (Rice, Lentils) - High Protein, Fiber & Potassium

Koshari (Rice, Lentils) - High Protein, Fiber & Potassium

Considered Egyptian "fast food", this is a fantastic recipe! Not like American fast food! It's different, for certain, but very filling and completely "clean" if you can get fresh tomato sauce!

This can be a vegetarian dish because traditional Koshari has NO CHICKEN in it. I added it in this recipe (and listed as optional) because I wanted added protein (and my husband refuses to eat a dish without meat!).

The "optional" ingredients truly are optional, however, they are included in the nutritional value.

The leftover lentils/macaroni/rice make for an amazing breakfast the next day with some egg whites! Submitted by: NICOLETTEDIMON

German Lentils

This is a family recipe that is easy to make in a slow cooker and goes great over spaetzle, rice or quinoa. Perfect for family meals and potlucks.

For a vegetarian alternative, remove or substitute the hot dogs with veggie dogs, and use vegetable stock/bullion.

For those on gluten-free diets, do not make the roux. Instead, incorporate a few tablespoons of a thickener, like corn starch, but do add the caramelized onions. Submitted by: BODYREMEDIATOR

Lentils winter fighter

This recipe is a combination of the chili flavor, stew and slow cooker most american will recognize, for me it is a typical winter dish made back at my country. Usually my mother would add around 7-8 ounces of ground beef to this dish but i decided to keep it out this time. Another thing i will always mention about this dish is that it taste better after a month in the fridge. The flavor is stronger and deeper . Lentils are a great source of iron, they dont need soaking before cooking, they are cheap and available in most supermarket. Around one cup of uncooked lentils makes 3 cups of cooked lentils Submitted by: NIKNOSAMA83

Italian Lentils with Spicy Sausage

This is a fast and super delicious stew that tastes slow roasted, feels wonderfully comforting, and gives the (false) impression of being VERY indulgent. Italian sausages, salami, tomatoes and lentils are simmered together to form an excellent winter one-pot meal.

This is adapted from Nigel Slater's "The Kitchen Diaries" to be lower fat by using turkey or chicken sausages and not using oil to saute the onions. Submitted by: VALLOUGH

Lentils and Bulgur / Moujadara

Very Good 4.0/5

Lentils and Bulgur / Moujadara

This Lebanese dish is the original recipe from southern Lebanon. It is still common in other parts of Lebanon and mostly made with rice instead. It's a healthier twist by using wheat instead . Extremely simple to cook, this dish is a fundamental component of Middle Eastern cuisine.
It provides carbohydrates, proteins, Iron, fiber, and a full stomach. It also tastes great.
When cooked with rice, this recipe is gluten-free. It isn't gluten free when cooked with bulgur (wheat).

Hope you enjoy this vegetarian mush!

Makes 7 cups. Serve with tomatoes, cucumber, mint, lemon juice and olive oil salad. My kids loves it mixed with yougurt.Submitted by: NADWAH

Roast cod on spiced Puy lentils

When we got home from a recent expedition to the town market (which included a visit to the fishmonger's stall!) I decided I was really in the mood to cook the hake I'd bought (of all the fish I got) and I was soon trawling the web for a recipe to guide me. The search was made especially easy because I knew I wanted to have lentils with the fish. The recipe I found, from Delicious magazine (via Channel 4) is reproduced below (and includes my recipe for spring greens, an inspired addition):Submitted by: LAFAGG

Onion Soup with Lentils, Sausage, & Escarole

Onion Soup with Lentils, Sausage, & Escarole

It's been a very chilly summer in New England and I have been craving onion soup to kill that chill. BUT, I wanted to avoid all the fat (cheese), bread, & excessive sodium that invariably comes with a good onion soup. Since I was going to cut out the best part (IMHO) of the onion soup, I really wanted a soup that had some body to it but would be low in calories and add much needed fiber, vitamins & minerals. This soup turned out very hearty and fully satisfied my craving. Although the sodium content isn't as low as I wanted it to be, I had to use up the box of beef broth that had been sitting in my cupboard. Next time I will look for a lower sodium broth. For those of you that aren't watching your sodium intake, you may find that you need to add more salt to the dish.

If measuring out all the seasonings is too much of a bother, you can use 1 tsp of Herbs du Provence. I misplaced my bottle so I used the other herbs in it's place (excluding rosemary because it isn't one of my favs).

This can easily be made into a vegetarian dish by substituting vegetable broth for the beef broth, two Morningstar Farms sausage links (or any other vegetarian "sausage" you prefer) for the turkey sausage.

For those of you that miss the cheese, try sprinkling on one or two tablespoons of grated parmesan. Just don't forget to include it in your daily nutrition calculations.

FYI, I couldn't find nutrtional info for Escarole. Since it is considered to be part of the endive family, I substituted endive when I calculated the nutritional values.Submitted by: RUBY214
