You could say I’ve have a recent obsession with lentils lately. I’ve been trying to incorporate them into more and more dishes. I like that earthy taste and the fact that they have a nice bite to them. Plus, they mend well with any dish. Here I combined them with a few of my favorite veggies: zucchini, jalapenos and onion. If you like BOLD flavors, but a very healthy and nutritious side dish, then this is for you!
