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 made these Honey Baked Lentils this morning. They're good but they're lacking in something. Next time, I'll use maple syrup instead of honey and add some curry powder to give it more of a kick. They're also a little dry so I was thinking a nice mango chutney & yogurt would complete the dish. - 3/8/20
