Lentils Nicoise

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by VegSocialWorker

From the Whole Foods website. I made this a little lower fat by eliminating the oil and cooking the onion and garlic in a small amount of water. I also use fat free feta cheese and whole wheat pasta. Use canned tomatoes if it is not tomato season- you want to have flavorful tomatoes for this recipe. This is a simple yet tasty recipe.

This is a great vegatarian dish. We put the leftovers on toasted french bread and it was even more delicious. Thank you.
