Red Red Red Lentils

My sister shared this recipe with me a few weeks ago. It was quick and easy and very visually pleasing. I made it with pork tenderloin and green beans. This recipe makes a lot but the leftovers heated up great!

beet lentils-1


2 cups cooked red lentils

1/2 medium sized yellow onion

1 green bell pepper

1 tbsp chopped garlic

4 cooked and peeled beets (I microwave them in about an inch of water, covered with wet paper towel for 15 minutes or until soft. You can also bake them.)

Salt and Pepper to taste


- Place onion, bell pepper, garlic, and beets in a food processor

- Process until smooth

- Fold beet mixture into cooked lentils


It's that easy, enjoy! This can be served warm or cold, I enjoyed it more warm. Let me know what you think!
