Recipe Ingredients for Garden Herb Lentils

1 cup lentils
3 cups water
1 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons diced red onion
3 cups baby spinach leaves
1 cup halved grape tomatoes, or diced tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1/4 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Recipe Directions for Garden Herb Lentils

  1. Place the lentils in a pot with the water and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes, until the lentils are tender but still retain their shape. Drain any excess water from the lentils and set them aside.

  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over a medium-high heat. Add the red onion and cook until they are softened, about 3 minutes. Add the spinach and cook until just wilted, about 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes, lentils, basil, parsley, and mint to the pan and stir to combine. Cook until warmed through, about 1 minute. Stir in the lime juice, salt and pepper and serve.
