Recipe Ingredients for sweet and sour lentils

1 1/2 cups lentils
2 cups unsweetened apple juice
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger root
2 cups water
1 cup chopped onions
3 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
1 cup carrots
1 medium bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 small zucchini or yellow squash, diced
1 tomato, chopped
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons vinegar

Recipe Directions for sweet and sour lentils

  1. 1. Rinse the lentils in a colander. Combine them in a saucepan with the apple juice, ginger, and water. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 30 to 40 minutes, until the lentils are tender. Add a little water near the end of cooking if necessary to prevent sticking.
