Garlic & Onion Seasoned Lentils!

So, my new obsession is.... LENTILS!  They are so great for you too-- full of fiber!  My good friend Laura shared her favorite version of lentil-making with me & I am so in love. You will be too.

Here's what you'll need:

1 cup dry lentils
1 carrot, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
1 bouillon cube {Chicken flavor!}
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cumin
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp garlic powder
Cilantro {to taste}

Ready? First, wash the lentils in a strainer.  Put them in a small container with 2 cups water {or until all lentils are under the water}.  Let them soak overnight.

Next day: Put the lentils in a small pot on the stove with a chopped carrot, chopped onion, bouillon cube, salt, cumin, garlic, and garlic powder.  Cook for 20 minutes on medium heat.  Once the lentils are soft, they're done! Make sure there's enough water for them to cook in at all times.  Top with cilantro, cook up some brown rice, and enjoy!

For an alternative, you can also cook the lentils in a crockpot on high for about 3 hours.  After that, turn the crockpot to low.  Check to make sure the lentils have enough water.  When they're soft, once again... they're done! Enjoy!
