This is so simple and so delicious. I made this while participating in my JUMP START program to liven up my meals. This can be tossed with brown rice or quinoa as well as eating it alone. This dish is packed with protein, fiber and nutrients that will help keep you full and satisfy your hunger. I’ve also made this with small white beans and garbanzo beans instead of lentils. Since I just got back from vacation a few days ago, I didn’t have any dried or canned beans, but I did have a package of Trader Joe’s steamed lentils. Perfect! Time saver and convenient.

I found this Bragg’s Organic Sea Kelp Delight and I am now obsessed. It’s basically an organic Mrs. Dash-type of seasoning using a wonderful blend of seasonings and spices. Seriously obsessed and highly recommend it. If you don’t have you can use Mrs. Dash or whatever salt-free seasoning you like.
This is a fantastic example of how eating healthy, wholesome foods can be delicious. You can use whatever vegetables you have in the house too. Let me know how you like it!
