Easy Red Lentils

Red lentils are my go-to when I need a quick, but filling side dish. Red lentils, unlike green or black lentils, cook in less than 30 minutes. Love it!


  • 2 C red lentils
  • 2-1/4 C water
  • 2-1/4 C chicken stock
  • 1 minced clove of garlic
  • 2 splashes of olive oil
  • 1/4 C fresh herbs (I used parsley from High Ground Organics tonight)
  • fleur de sel to taste

In a medium sauce pan, soften the garlic in a splash of olive oil.

Stir in the lentils and add the liquids. Bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to a simmer.

Simmer until softened and fluffy. It usually takes about 20-25 minutes.

Add another splash of olive oil, fold in the herbs, and season to taste with salt. Serve hot.
