Snack / Appetizer This Bruschetta like snack is quick, easy and so yummy. I like to use a sprouted lentil trio by tru Roots. You can find them at www.vitacost.com. One cup cooks quickly – under 7 minutes and makes a lot so I sometimes cut the recipe in half and make a curry soup with yams with the remainder.
Ingredients: 1 cup dried sprouted lentils
2 medium tomatoes, diced
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
4 to 6 cloves of garlic, minced
2 tablespoons chopped basil Fresh ground pepper to taste
1. Cook lentils according to package directions.
2. While lentils are cooking, dice tomatoes and add the remaining ingredients. Mix well.
3. Drain cooked lentils and stir into the tomato mixture. Chill or serve warm with multi-seed crackers, pita, or tortilla chips for dipping. If you are cleansing, skip the chips and crackers and use carrot chips instead.
Total Cooking Time: approximately 15 minutes Nutritional notes: excellent source of protein (18g per cup) and high in folate, manganese and selenium.
