We enjoy having a meatless meal once in a while, and this is a favourite. This time, we made it as a little side dish to our yummy salad supper. It was delicious! Thanks to my friend Lynne for sharing this recipe with me a few years ago. Here’s one easy, yummy recipe. My sister thinks it needs a bit more “bite” to it, so alter it as you wish. We like it just as it is!

Sweet and Sour Lentils

1 cup red lentils
2 cups water
2 tsp veggie/chicken bouillon powder
1 bay leaf
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup apple/pineapple juice
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 clove garlic, minced
1 onion, diced and sauteed (optional)

Bring water to a boil. Add bouillon, bay leaf, salt, and lentils. Simmer 20 minutes or until cooked through. Add remaining ingredients, heat until bubbly. Serve over rice.
