We eat a lot of beans/legumes in our house, due to my meat aversion. I REALLY like lentils because they are so incredibly versatile, but not everyone in our house is as big of a fan as I am. Last night, however...the boys each ate a bowl of these within about 2 minutes flat. Even B, who is possibly the slowest eater EVER (alright, he may have taken 5 minutes, but that is still a record).
Salsa Lentils - I didn't write it down so hopefully the measurements are right!
1 c lentils (rinsed)
1-1.5 c of water
1/2 c salsa
1 quart diced tomatoes (or 2 14 oz cans)
1 bouillon cube (or use broth instead of water)
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp sugar
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 onion, chopped
Put it all in the crockpot, stir, cook on low 8 hrs. You can serve this however you want: over rice, as a taco/burrito filling, or make it into taco salad. If you're going to use it as a filling, you might want to use a little less liquid or vent the lid of the crockpot during the last hour.
This was GOOD. And I used the leftovers to make veggie burgers tonight which was tasty too...especially for leftovers!
