Lentils and Veggies

Lentils are a wonderful food packed with nutrition!  But what to do with them?  I add a little chicken boullion to the water when I cook my lentils to add a little more flavor.  In a separate pan, I add some coconut oil and saute chopped onion, garlic, and celery.  Then I'll chop up other veggies such as carrots and bell peppers and toss them in.  Then eggplant, zucchini, broccoli, mushrooms, cilantro, and spinach.  I add mushrooms, cilantro, and spinach last because they take the least amount of time to cook.  Sometimes I add jalopeno for a little kick and season with salt pepper, and maybe a little sage.

Sometimes I'll eat it just like this.  Other times, I'll put it on a bed of lettuce, then top with cucumbers, tomatoes, avocado, and squeeze lime or lemon juice.  Then I like to add a dollop of yogurt and some fresh cilantro.  It's quite a hearty meal like this.
