Thick Red Lentils & Red Peppers

Yield: 4 servings

Thick Red Lentils & Red Peppers has only four ingredients. Not counting salt, pepper, and the garnishing, which isn't complicated at all. So, this recipe is super easy.

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups red lentils, dried
  • 5 cups vegetable broth, divided
  • ½ package(1.25 oz.) Mrs. Dash Salt-Free Beef Stew Seasoning mixture
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • ½ tsp. coarse ground pepper
  • ½ cup red bell pepper, diced
  • GARNISH:
  • Green onions
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Instructions

In a large skillet (about 3"+ deep), put the red lentils and three cups of broth. Bring to a boil on high heat. Let it cook about 10-13 minutes stirring occasionally.

Reduce heat to medium low, a simmering boil. Add the remaining broth, half of the packaged of the seasoning mixture, salt and pepper. Whisk together to dissolve the seasoning mix. Cover and let the lentils cook about 20-25 minutes. Stir a few times and add water if the mixture needs more liquid.

Turn heat to low. Cook until tender, about 15-20 more minutes. Add in the red bell peppers.

Serve immediately with a drizzle of olive oil and green onions.

Notes

Lentils cook fairly quickly. You want to make sure you have constant liquid in them.

If you like your lentils a tad more 'soupy' then add in more broth or water. I love thick creamy lentils that are almost the consistency of oatmeal.
