Lentil Chili #Recipe

Sunday, April 07, 2013 Posted by Aleksandra Nearing

This chili is incredibly simple, yet incredibly delicious.  It cooked quickly and can be dressed up with other veggies if you're adventurous.  Our family likes it plain.

1 medium onion, diced
1 pound lentils
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
salt and pepper to taste
1 can diced tomatoes, not drained
1 cup pasta sauce
5 cups water

Saute onions in a splash of olive oil for about 3-5 minutes in your cooking pot on medium low heat. Add all other ingredients, simmer about 20 minutes. Serve with chopped cilantro mixed in.

This quick and easy meal can be prepared very quickly for an easy weekday dinner.

    We love lentils! I make a similar recipe, with garlic and sans tomatoes but a little tomato sauce instead. Yum!
