Warm Lentil Salad With Sun-Dried Tomatoes

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Sarah_Jayne

I am really coming to enjoy lentils which is something I never would have anticipated in the past but they really are versatile. I stole this off a a vegan website and have been meaning to try it. I am sticking it here so I don't forget I have it. They didn't list serving amounts so I am guessing a tad.

Simple and Delicious! My vegetables came out almost carmelized when I cooked them. That, added with the red wine vinegar and sundried tomatoes, made for a great flavor combo. I did use 3 cloves of garlic because mine were small. I also simmered the lentils until tender. When I cook lentils at a full boil, they tend to loose their shape and turn to mush rather quickly. After making this, I would maybe say this recipe makes 6-8 servings instead of 2. I hope this helps!
