Seasoned Mashed Lentils

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by So Cal Gal

So simple, yet so good! A great side dish or cracker spread. Be sure to use freshly ground pepper in this, as it makes a big difference in the flavor. (Slightly adapted from a recipe in The Low Oxalate Cookbook, Book Two.)

So good - and one of our favorite meals, along with broccoli or green beans. I omit the onion & garlic powder in favor of fresh onion & garlic cooked along with the lentils like some other reviewers suggested.
