Lentils (gluten, dairy, corn, soy and refined sugar free)

I love Lentils, they are delicious and very good for you! 1/2 a cup of cooked lentils has about 9 grams of protein and 8 grams of fiber! Sometimes cooking dried beans can take some time, but lentils cook very quickly and this dish is done in about an hour and a half with minimal work, so it is a great dish to make and keep in the fridge so you have them ready to go for lunch or dinner. Just a scoop on top of your salad and you have a great meal!



Ingredients
1 cup lentils rinsed and picked through
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1/2 onion chopped finely
4 garlic cloves minced
1 quart chicken stock
salt and pepper

Directions
In a medium pot, add the rinsed lentils, olive oil, onion, garlic, stock, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil then cover with lid slightly lifted to allow steam out. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for about 1 1/2 hours until lentils are tender. Ladle lentil mixture over cooked brown rice or salad.
