I'm so bad at using the search function! It says there are no matches for 'lentils' when I do it . . . :

I know there's a really popular recipe for it somewhere on here. Help?!

This is the recipe I have:

2 cups lentils
4 cups water
1 chopped onion
4 TBS tamari sauce
4 TBS Honey
3 TBS Olive Oil
2 tsp ground ginger
1 large clove of garlic, minced

Mix all of the above in large baking dish, and bake for 1.5 hours at 350 degrees.

I just made the HBL recipe (half of the one posted above), and loved it!

However, I found that it really did not take 1.5 hrs in the oven. But maybe that was because I prepped it in the morning so it soaked all day before I turned on the oven.

I also just made this in the stove top (again, I soaked it, because the timing worked well for me) and it worked well there too. Didn't take much more than a half hour, I think.

I use less oil than the above recipe calls for (2 tbs), but more onion (2 medium, chopped), and add 2 teaspoons of prepared mustard as well.

I have a LeCreuset pot, and sometimes saute the onions in the oil before adding the other ingredients and throwing it in the oven. My DD adds everything to the pot and stirs it up.

I'm so excited to try this, but first 2 dumb questions: Do you bake it uncovered? And do you eat it plain, like a side dish, or over rice or something as a main dish?

I do it with lentils that were preboiled with bay leaves. I bake it covered and take the cover off for the last 10 minutes to brown the top. It is great as a baked beans substitute. We also like leftovers as a pita bread sandwich filling, assuming the lentils aren't too wet.

I made this a couple weeks ago for a dinner party. I used red lentils. There was only the smallest little serving left. Yummy!!! The recipe I saw said she sometimes substituted 1/3 c of rice or barley for some of the lentils. I am definitely going to try that next time. Oh and I forgot about it in the oven and cooked it for over 2.5 hours. It was like lentil mush but so good.

Mmm... I'm going to have to try this this week. Especially because I have all the ingredients on hand and I don't feel like going to the grocery store (I'm running out of food )

I made that a couple weeks ago, it was pretty good. I think I added potatoes and some rice to it too just to bulk it up a bit and make a 'one pot meal' yk? Was pretty tasty

Do I need to replace tamari sauce with anything? I couldn't find any at the supermarket, and I'm not sure what flavor it is...Hot? Sweet?

Tamari sauce is just like soy sauce only it doesn't have wheat in it. It tastes a tiny bit different but not much.

That's so funny, this is what I have baking in the oven right now! I can smell them cooking. I use 1 cup of lentils and 1 cup brown rice and serve it as a main dish with veggies on the side. Oh so easy and delicious! I have normally used brown lentils but this time I am trying the little green ones. :
