Everyone needs to know about this meal. It is one of our favorite family meals! Recently this is the meal that we have when we invite people over as well and most people just really enjoy it. One of the nice things about it is that it is gluten free, soy free, nut free, sugar free, and most other allergens free. :) It's pretty safe no matter who you serve....except someone who can't tolerate lentils. Oh well...can't will 'em all! It is so yummy!
Layer the following:
1 C lentils
5 C water
1 chopped onion
2 bay leaves
1/2 tsp oregano
1 chopped carrot
1 clove minced garlic
1 15oz can tomato sauce
2 tsp salt
2 T chicken seasoning
Toppings - these are what make the stack!!!
lemon juice - best from fresh lemon wedges
olive oil with minced garlic in it
I never measure when it comes to preparing the garlic and olive oil. I pour olive oil into a pint mason jar and just start mincing garlic. If I poured in about a cup of oil, I'd probably use about 10 cloves of garlic. We are not shy about garlic! I try to do that at least an hour before we eat so that the garlic and oil can marinate.
This is an amazing meal!! I hope you enjoy it too!
