Lentils, Anyone?

Are you trying to get more lentils in your life?  😉  Here’s an easy and inexpensive dish that can be seasoned according to your mood of the day:  Mexican, Italian, Indian, or whatever.  This is, once again, from one of my favorite books, The Complete Tightwad Gazette (or The Tightwad Gazette II) by Amy Dacyczyn.  I found the recipe online here.  (Remember that you can click on the photo to get a larger view.)

Next time I make this, I will add some bits of color such as diced red pepper or carrots.  I do like that this makes enough for leftovers, which I will have for lunch today, served in a whole-wheat tortilla wrap with a Mexican twist by adding some cumin while re-heating.

“The philosopher Diogenes was eating bread and lentils for supper. He was seen by the philosopher Aristippus, who lived comfortably by flattering the king. Said Aristippus, “If you would learn to be subservient to the king you would not have to live on lentils.” Said Diogenes, “Learn to live on lentils and you will not have to be subservient to the king.”
