Toasted Lentils Recipe

· Nutrition,Recipes,Health,Food,Cooking

I find this recipe works best with cooked green lentils or traditional chana dhal.

I soak and cook the lentils from scratch, but you can buy them in a can if you're looking to save time or don't want the hassle of soaking and cooking. Rinse and drain them if you get them out of a can!

  • 1-2 cup cooked lentils
  • 2-3 tbsp grapeseed oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2-3 tsp spices

Good spice options:

  • garlic powder & paprika
  • onion powder & chili powder
  • cumin
  • chipotle powder
  • curry blend powder

Spread on a cookie sheet lined with parchment/baking paper (trust me, this will make clean up easier), and roast at 400F for 20-30 minutes.  May need to stir/spread around after 10 minutes.

These go well with scrambled eggs, leafy green salad with oil & vinegar dressing, or by themselves as a quick snack.  I tend to put a couple of tablespoons in a small bowl and snack on them with a spoon. 


Unsure where to start with nutrition, fitness, or overall health improvement?  Give me a shout for a free goal setting session and let's start the conversation.
