Sweet Baked Lentils Recipe

Don't let its plain appearance fool you; (that's what the pretty bowl is for anyway). These lentils, baked for a long time with tomatoes and molasses, are incredibly delicious especially served over rice or pasta.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups brown lentils, uncooked
  • 5 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 (12-ounce) can of tomatoes, blended

  2. Transfer to a baking dish and bake at 350°F for 60 minutes. Serve over rice, pasta, or eat on its own.
