On a recent trip to the health food store, I was inspired to buy French (Puy) lentils but wasn't sure what I would do with them. I also know my husband and kids are not fans of lentils so I wasn't expecting to share.
I started by making a big pot of lentils, cooked with a diced onion and carrot, a bay leaf, some chicken boullion (actually, it was "Low Sodium Better than Boullion"), some fresh thyme, and pepper. I also threw in some chopped turkey bacon.

Lentils and rice cold over mixed salad greens (tossed with white balsamic vinegar and EVO)
Lentils over mixed salad greens (same dressing) with leftover cold grilled marinated eggplant, tomatoes, kalamata olives
