Seasoned Mashed Lentils

Seasoned Mashed Lentils created by Kitty Z

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.)

    You drain the water from boiling the lentils first before mashing right?

    THANK YOU!! You saved my gross overcooked lentils I had shoved into my fridge with this one. With some tweaks u could make this a high-protein healthier alternative for mashed potatoes!

    I made some changes to this one, with favorable results. I fried a bit of onion and garlic in some butter before adding the lentils and cut out the dry spices. Also, when the lentils were ready, I tossed in dash or two of bread crumbs to make the consistency more like mashed potatoes; just enough to get the lentils a little tacky. Great side dish for vegetarian comfort foods. Thanks for the recipe!

    This tasted pretty good on it's own, but I used it as a sandwich spread and unfortunately, it got a little lost amongst all the other flavors. Next time I'll just eat it as a side dish or a dip. Thanks for sharing!
