Pineapple Lentils

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Tebo3759

The sweetness of the pineapple lends itself surprisingly well with the lentils. Spice it up a bit with some hot sauce of chile powder!! Freeze leftovers for later.

Quite tasty! With the texture and flavor, it's almost like shredded pineapple chicken. I added a 20oz can of pineapple since I have a bit of a sweet tooth, and I'm glad I did. I also simmered for about 35 minutes, rather than 45. Any more would have been too much. Will try adding the chile powder... a bit of extra "zest" might be nice
