Lentil Salad

At the risk of being untruthful, I must immediately confess that I did not cook this in the solar oven. I should have though, and it’s super yummy, so I think it belongs here anyway.

Yesterday I made chili, which I already posted here awhile ago. My husband used the crock pot (for the last time, as it died immediately) to make an amazing lentil salad. The recipe is from the Esselstyn’s book How to Prevent Heart Disease. It could and should have been done in the solar oven, so here is the recipe:

Lentil Salad

2 cups green lentils

4 cups water

1 chopped onion

1 chopped red pepper

Combine the above ingredients and solar cook till the lentils are soft.

Then add in:

2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 cup cilantro

2 Tbsp mustard

3 Tbsp lime juice

2 Tbsp dill

Stir and enjoy. It’s good hot or cold!

Rating: definitely one of the better recipes here. The kids devoured it, and it’s both vegan and GAPS friendly, not to mention gluten-free!
