I live off of lentils. For someone who’s often too busy, viagra here too tired or too lazy to soak beans overnight, herpes lentils are the perfect option. No overnight soaking and they cook up in just a half an hour. Not to mention that they’re some of the healthiest food around. Full good things like protein, unhealthy fiber, iron and vitamins. They’re a veritable powerhouse of awesome.
And what better to pair this health food with than cured pork, aged cheese and flavored oil? Like bacon, everything is better with pancetta. It gives the lentils a subtle porky flavor. Onions and garlic add aroma. Lemon and sherry vinegar give the lentils a bite. Shaved Parmesan cheese and smoked paprika oil lend them a richness that balances everything out and makes this a meal. These lentils are hearty, deeply flavorful and delicious. One of my favorite quick lunches.
If your lentil experience is limited to soup, give these a try. You’ll be singing the praises of the lowly lentil in no time.
