My sister was telling me about this salad she made with French green lentils, but by the time I stopped at Trader Joe’s I knew there was no way I was going to make it to actually cooking green lentils and then tossing together a salad. I’m trying to make healthier choices all day long so when I saw Trader Joe’s steamed lentils…I knew this was the short cut I needed to stop me from veering off the healthy eating trail. I still had to chop a few things, but the steamed lentils ready to eat right out of the package was just what I needed. I did warm them, but that only took three minutes in the microwave.
|Shallots, carrot, yellow bell pepper, fresh parsley and arugula.|
|I sauteed the thinly sliced shallots in a little olive oil until soft and then added my diced carrot and bell pepper. Season with salt and pepper.|
|Available at Trader Joe’s for $2.99.|
