Toasted Quinoa and Lentils

In my attempt to make a quinoa-lentil veggie burger, I instead created a delicious toasted quinoa and lentil dish that while different in form is similar in flavor to the veggie burger. Best of all, the mixture is delicious with a variety of other foods, including mixed greens and roasted vegetables.

Toasted Quinoa and Lentils


> 2 cups cooked quinoa
> 1 cup cooked lentils
> 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
> salt
> 2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese

In a medium bowl, combine quinoa, lentils, cumin and feta. Season with salt and mix until well combined.

Spray large skillet with cooking spray and add quinoa-lentil mixture. Cook for about 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Serve on its own, atop a salad or with vegetables.

Makes 4 servings.
