I wanted to bring something different to our friend’s bbq – which would probably the last bbq for the season. I had lentils in the pantry and thought to use them up this way. I searched for something unique and came across a recipe from Giada De Laurentiis.
Saute 1 onion and 1/2 cup green pepper until soft. Add 1 pound of lentils (usually one bag) and coat in oil. Add 2 cups vegetable broth and simmer until the lentils are done but still have a bite to them.
Here, I quartered one cucumber and de-seeded it as shown. Then I sliced across the width of the cucumber.
Zest two lemons to release essential oils in the fruit….(be careful not to get the white part, also called the “pith” – which is bitter)
