My husband would eat this every day if he could. Top with goat cheese if desired.

  • Place an 8x8-inch glass baking dish in the preheating oven to warm briefly. Remove and add coconut oil, 1 teaspoon turmeric, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Stir in lentils.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until lentils are warmed through, about 10 minutes.

  • Continue baking until tomatoes soften, about 10 minutes.

I was skeptical from the first time I read this recipe. Boy was I wrong to be so. This is really delicious and different. I've never eaten sprouted lentils but found that they are fresh crisp and enjoyable. It took a few days to sprout them but it is worth the time and effort. The dish is not as labor-intensive as it reads. Everything flows perfectly. While the dish is warming in the oven you're effortlessly doing the next step. The lentils lose some of their volume so even though at the beginning it seems it won't all fit in the pan don't worry it will. I used shredded chicken instead of diced and added a very generous amount of hot peppers. Thank you for this unique recipe. Read More
