In keeping with the Choosing Home Blog’s theme this week on easy lunch ideas, I thought I’d share one that’s good-for-you and cheap as well!
This one comes from Katie (mom of 12). I’ve had it for a couple of years now…YUM. Ideal for lunch.
- One bag of lentils
- One bunch of spinach, chopped
- One to two chopped onions
- One tsp minced garlic
- 2 TB lemon juice
Saute the onion and garlic until tender. Add lentils and cover with water (a lot of water, they grow). Boil for at least an hour until lentils are tender. Add lemon juice and spinach, salt and pepper to taste. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Serve with cheddar cheese on bottom of bowl…spoon hot soup over and the cheese melts. Can I say YUM one last time?
