Recipe: Lentils and Caramelized onions

Lentils and Caramelized Onions

This has GOT to be one of the easiest, best recipes I know.

2 cups dried green lentils
1 1/2 – 2 onions

Follow package directions to boil lentils – usually takes about 45 minutes.  Get those started first.

Peel and slice up the onions very thin.  Keep in rings or cut smaller if desired.  Water saute 5-10 minutes on med-hi in wide bottom fry pan.  Use water or veggie broth.   Add 1/8 cup brown sugar, cover, and simmer gently.  Onions have their own water and sugar so you don’t need to add much.  Just keep on low 30+ minutes and peek every now and then to stir and prevent sticking.  Once carmelized nicely, mix most of the onions into the lentils and then serve some on top.  That’s it.

Serve and enjoy!
