Number of Servings: 6


    --1 1/2 cups lentils (I used brown)
    --3 cups water
    --1/2 red onion, diced
    --1 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
    --1/2 cup shredded carrot
    --1 tsp salt
    --1 tsp dried mustard
    --1/4 tsp ground ginger
    --2 T soy sauce (La Choy or Tamari Wheat Free are GF)
    --1/3 cup honey (and maybe another 1 T later to taste)
    --1 dried bay leaf or 2 fresh


I used a 4 quart crockpot.

The awesome thing about lentils (actually, there are a few awesome things) is that they are cheap, full of fiber, and you don't have to pre-soak them. You really should rinse them off, though.

Put the lentils into your crockpot. Add the water. Chop up the onion, and add along with the carrots (I cheated and used a bag of shredded carrots leftover from the chicken adobo). Drain and rinse the garbanzo beans and add. Stir in the dried mustard, salt, and ginger. Add the soy sauce and honey. Stir to combine. Float the bay leaf (ves) on top.

Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 3-5. I started ours on low for 3 hours, then switched it to high for another 3 when I realized that I added wrong in my head (that actually happens a lot with me.)

Taste. If desired, stir in an extra tablespoon of honey.

Serve with white or brown rice if you're a vegetarian, or a rib-eye if you're not.

  • What could you use in place of the soy sauce? Even lower sodium versions still have waaaay too much sodium to fit into my nutritional targets. - 7/5/09
