Cheers to the weekend, cheers to *almost* the spring, and cheers to lentils! I’m so excited to share these healthy lentil recipes with you guys. Get ready for new Meatless Monday inspiration, plus some protein-packed meals to make for your weekday meal prep.
Haven’t cooked with lentils before? Welcome, you’ve come to the right place. I absolutely love adding lentils to traditionally meat-heavy meals like chilis, stews, and even tacos, because they pack tons of plant-based protein and fiber. These little babies are guaranteed to fill you up.
Start with my mom’s famous vegetarian lentil “meatloaf” – it’s freaking delicious.
If you liked my 18 protein-packed chickpea recipes, you’re going to love these ones. Lentils are great at adopting flavors and they’re inexpensive (aka stock up on them for these go-to meals). Let’s get to it! Put these vegetarian recipes on your Meatless Monday menu, and get ready to wow your meat-eating friends and family.
