Sprouted lentils are great too! They are tender and hearty, and this exact same recipe would be great with them!

I made an interesting one today at the cafe where I chef with apple cider vinegar, red onion, parsley, dried lemon and orange rind, cinnamon and clove. We're adding it to our menu, it was so well liked! :)

Everything was going well, yes, I know lentils, yes, I've used lentils for years, I'm always looking for new ways with lentils...
jicama with lentils - give you one guess what I'm having for lunch today!
I'll have to cook my own but that's ok since I now have French and black lentils in my pantry. What I don't have in Dallas is a Trader Joe's.
Excellent my girl.

I have always been a bit leary of lentils as well. But the following recipe (http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/recipe_views/views/236943, from Gourmet) is just fantastic. Lentils and fennel are the stars.

I didn't become a fan of lentils until I got older...and surprised myself! I love this recipe. And, I am excited Trader Joe's finally opened here. Thanks!

Lentils are great. No Trader Joe's here either so I guess I have to cook my own. I like the idea of jicama. Great job.


I have never run across spouted lentils. Do you have to sprout them or can you buy them that way.

That salad sounds so good. Betcha the lentils just drank up all those fantastic flavors!


You don't have a Trader Joe's? I morn for you. Trader Joe's is my...well I don't know what I would do without one. I did buy a package of beluga lentils. One thing that Trader Joe's does do is quickly stop carrying items without warning. Did you try the salad? I would love to know what you thought of it!


That recipe sounds wonderful. Believe it or not I have never tried fennel. I am going to have to rectify that!


Trader Joe's is the ultimate is heathy shopping. They don't stock anything with hydrogenated oils and almost everything has a simple, easy to read, short ingredient list. I love them. I think you will too!


Thank you! Jicama is one of my favorite snack veggies, along with snow or sugarsnap peas. Its just so light and crunchy and irresistible. I would love to see you try the salad!


The recipe sounds great. I never tried with lentels, I always doing it with white beans. I am going to have to change that!

By the way check this side dish this, gives a nice twist to the french fries http://flavorofspain.com/?p=10
