Lentil Pilaf

Lentil Pilaf created by Mamas Kitchen Hope

A recipe from Ricardo that can be frozen and used in recipe#340401 . Edit : I made it on Nov 26, 2008, and I used red lentils. They're smaller so it tooked only 10-15 minutes of cooking. But it was like a puree. I'm going to use half of it to do the soup that I mention in this recipe.

    This was tasty and very easy to prepare. I am not a lentil lover but am looking for tasty alternatives that are healthier, and budget friendly. This was not bland at all. Lots of flavor here from so few ingredients. I can see this work well as a simple soup by adding a little more broth, a great side as is or with some veggies added to it. I think this would be great as is, rolled up burrito or taco style in a tortilla. Thanks Boomette!

    While this. as a pilaf, is a little "bland" it does make a nice side when the rest of the meal has a ton of flavouring. Plus you could also jazz it up with the herbs of your choosing I froze the leftovers to make the suggested soup at a later date and will try to remember to redo a review at that time Made for New Kids On the Block Dec 2008 Thanks Boomette
