I've just discovered this thread, and it's timely for me. However, I didn't notice that it's an old thread, and the much raved about recipe for honey-baked lentils is no longer available at the link on the first page.

Does anybody have it and want to share? I was planning to do something lentil-y for dinner tomorrow....

ETA: Never mind. I see it - post 54. I think it's dinner tomorrow.

re: the honey-baked lentils. Does anybody know how many servings that is? Any suggestions for sides? I was thinking of maybe making it with rice and salad for dinner tonight, but I don't think that recipe looks big enough for us. (Of course, that depends on how hungry my teenager is, and whether the middle two will even eat it...)

Lentils roughly plump up to about 2.5 times the original volume, so 1 c would become about 2.5. Probably not enough for a family meal - I'd double it or better. The recipe works beautifully with any legume though - I just cook the beans and then add the flavorings and bake them together... using 1 c cooked legumes per recipe.

Thanks, Cristeen. I have lots of lentils (green, red and mixed), so I'll probably just double it, and round things out with sides.

DH and I are meat eaters, but we can't really afford to eat the quality and quantity of meat that we'd like. So, we're working more meatless meals in, so that we can have the quality we like. I'm optimistic about lentils...my last meal (curried red lentils & sweet potato) wasn't a huge hit, but dd1 was the only one who really disliked it...because my picky eater (dd1) actually likes raw lentils straight from the bag.

Hopefully, this has not been posted before. Have not read the entire thread. Made this last night for dinner. It was so quick and easy and really good.

i just made this last week and it was delicious:
lentils and cheese

cook lentils as usual (boil with lots of water and some salt until soft), then drain and return to the pot. add 3 Tbsp tomato paste and 3/4 cup farmer cheese or queso fresco. heat until cheese melts in. serve with rice.

ridiculously simple and so good.
