Number of Servings: 4


    1 cup lentils
    2 cups water
    2 tbsp honey (or maple syrup, agave nectar, etc)
    2 tbsp soy sauce (or Bragg's, tamari, shoyu, etc)
    2 tbsp olive oil
    1/2 tsp ginger root, grated
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 small onion, chopped
    salt & pepper


Combine all ingredients in a covered dish. Bake in a covered dish at 350 until tender (about an hour and a half).

Alternatively, you can cook this on the stovetop for about 40 minutes in a saucepan (until the lentils are tender).
This is great served over rice, quinoa or couscous.

You can also use red lentils, which has more of a soup-like consistency. Equally delicious. Experiment!

    Excellent recipe.
    I have done this recipe as well in the crock pot. 4-5 hours on low does the trick.

    Made 2 small changes when making this. We used powdered dry ginger, and shallots instead of onion.

    I love and crave this recipe!

    This was great! My husband thought it was beef when he came home! He really likes it! I will definitely make again! I used the maple syrup instead of the honey. - 5/11/09

    I really enjoyed lentils made this way. I added one medium sweet potato and a large carrot, as well as took MEGGO27's advice and added cayenne. I served it over brown basmati rice seasoned with cumin, curry and lemon juice. YUM! Thanks. - 12/21/08

  • I might add a little less tamari sauce next time, but it was still superb! - 10/6/17
