Really Easy Bacon and Red Onion Lentils

Total Time
Prep 2 mins

I just saw this side dish on the UKTV Food program called Market Kitchen. It was part of a larger meal but since I am always looking for ways to cook healthy things like lentils it grabbed my eye. I am putting it on here so that I don't forget about it. It looks really easy because of the use of canned lentils.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fry the bacon and red onions in olive oil for about five minutes until the onion has become soft.
  2. Add the lentils to the pan and warm through.

This was fast and easy but I thought it needed some oomph. I added some chopped garlic, salt, pepper and some herbes de provence to get it to a point of being tastier. It would be a nice side dish to many things, and I ate it alone as lunch. This will certianly be good cold too, as a salad, with some oil and vinegar dressing and maybe some veggies. Very healthy and full of fiber.
