dried brown lentils, rinsed and drained

stewed tomatoes, undrained
1 (15 ounce) can
artichoke hearts in water
cayenne pepper, divided
olive oil, divided
green onions, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
Tasty & fairly simple to make. I made a few modification because I was having more guests at dinner than I expected. Luckily I had extra artichokes, but I just added some ketchup and a tad more water to make up for more tomatoes. (I only did this to add ~ one serving. Not sure if it would work on a larger scale.)
I also served over rice instead of pasta because of my gluten allergy.
Everyone RAVED though. Tomatoes and lentils are a great combo, and artichokes add the perfect something extra!
If you don't LOVE artichokes, don't try this recipe.
Mmmmmm! Tomatoes and lentils are such a delicious combination!! This is a very good recipe...I tweaked it a tiny bit to our taste: Try with sauteed garlic, minus the green onions and substitute finely minced sweet spanish onion. Add fresh chopped parsley (about 2 tbsp)and 1/2 tsp crushed chili peppers. Top with curls of romano cheese right before serving (use a vegetable peeler). Enjoy!
I was a little unsure as to whether this recipe would have enough flavor but I was pleasantly surprised. It was very easy to throw together on a week night. I didn't have any sesame seeds and used a little chopped yellow onion in place of the green. It was a nice hearty easy meal.
I was unsure about this at first, but it is fabulous. It took longer for the lentils to get done though. My husband said this is a definate keeper.
delicious! i also didn't expect much flavor initially, but it was superb. i put it more cayenne, though, and didn't taste so much else ;)
This was really good. I made mine with whole wheat pasta and used a peppercorn medley for seasoning. Also just used the purple onions that I had in my fridge. No sesame seeds. Added garlic powder, too. I found that the wheat noodles really complimented this dish. My boyfriend really liked it. It's a keeper because it was so easy, hearty, and healthy to boot.
Served with a green salad, this makes a good week night dinner. It was easy to make, and adaptable. I didn't have artichoke hearts, but I added a bit of stock to my (crushed) tomatoes. I used red lentils instead of brown, yellow onion instead of green, and I added celery and garlic in with the onions. I liked the taste that the sesame seeds added. Thanks for the recipe!
