Number of Servings: 4


    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 medium shallot, finely minced
    2 garlic cloves, finely minced
    1 teaspoon paprika
    1 1/2 cups water
    3/4 cup dry lentils, rinsed
    2 tablespoons tamari (sub. soy sauce), divided
    1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
    1 teaspoon honey


In a medium saucepan with a lid, heat oil over medium heat. Add minced shallot and garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant and starting to soften, about a minute. Add paprika, lentils, water, and 1 tablespoon tamari and bring the mixture to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and simmer the mixture, stirring occasionally, for 45-55 minutes, until the lentils are tender.

Remove pot from the heat and let the lentils sit, covered, for 10 minutes. Stir in the remaining 1 tablespoon tamari, apple cider vinegar, and honey.

Cool completely before storing leftovers. Lentils will keep for up to 5 days refrigerated in an airtight container.

Serving Size: Makes 2 cups or 4 servings of 1/2 cup.

Number of Servings: 4

  • I love these lentils. With the cauliflowers steaks from the program, and with some wilted spinach and shaved parm for a lunch salad. Soooo good. - 3/26/15
