These are quick, easy and delicious!
1 cup lentils
8 oz extra sharp cheese (“seriously sharp” cabot is my favorite)
tamari or soy sauce
salsa verde *
1. Bring lentils to a boil (in about 4 cups of water). Reduce heat and simmer for about 15 minutes.
2. Drain the water out, then add about 2 tbs tamari to the lentils and let sit for a few minutes.
3. Lightly butter 1 side of the tortillas and put buttered side on a griddle.
4. Sprinkle 1/2 the tortilla with cheese. Add two scoops of lentils on top of the cheese and spread evenly over 1/2 of the tortilla. Sprinkle the lentils with a little more cheese, then fold the other half of the tortilla over and grill until crispy.
5. Serve with salsa Verde *
*Green salsa, made with tomatillos instead of tomatoes, is essential to this meal! Ortega’s is the best, but its very difficult to find. I just tried it with Goya salsa verde and the flavor was great, but a little too spicy for me.
Tomato soup goes great with this!
