Cold Beets and Lentils

Submitted by: ANNEINTHEMAKING

Introduction

This is a great dish that I just stumbled upon when trying to create a portable lunch for myself to tote to work. Also can be served hot.

Works really well with peeled and steamed beets and already cooked lentils (both available at Mother's Market - Melissa is the brand for each).
A great VEGAN dish as well!

Ingredients

    2.5 to 3 cold peeled, steamed small beets (or one large beet)

    1 cup of cold, cooked lentils, can be pre-salted while cooking

    2 tbsps of balsamic vinegar

    Salt and Pepper, to taste.

Directions

The below instructions are based on working from pre-steamed and peeled beet and pre-cooked lentils.

Remove 2 - 3 beets from package. Chop into 1 inch pieces.

Dump 1 cup of lentils into a bowl.

Mix in beets.

Splash balsamic vinegar on top of mixture. Stir lightly.

Add salt and pepper to taste.

Enjoy!

Serving: Above recipe will make 1 serving. If you use the entire contents of the Melissa brand beets and lentils, it will make two full servings.

If you do not have pre-cooked beets or lentils, the process will take longer.

This dish may be served warm as well.
