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!

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp red pepper flakes

2 cups mushrooms, sliced

1 sweet onion, chopped

2 tbsp chopped garlic

1 cup shredded carrots

1 lb ground beef

8 cups tomato sauce of your choice, I like Amy's Organic Family Marinera

- Boil water, cook pasta according to package instructions

- Heat olive oil in medium pan, add red pepper flakes

- Sautee garlic, onions, carrots, and mushrooms until soft

- Add beef to pan and brown

- Stir in red sauce and spinach until sauce is warmed and spinach is wilted

Another super yummy, super easy! Enjoy! These leftovers heat up great. You can aslo freeze the sauce!
