Up until a month or so ago, I don't think I had ever eaten a Lentil.
Given that I was a vegetarian for a while, this is actually kind of odd. No one in my family eats lentils so I hardly even knew they existed.
Trader Joe's to the rescue (as usual).
TJ's usually has samples out and last time I was at the one near my parent's house, they had lentils and chicken sausage. I figured I'd give the mixture a try since I knew lentils were high in fiber and I"m a bit of a fiber junkie. Well, I was pleasantly surprised to enjoy their flavor and texture, so I bought a pouch right there.
They can be eaten solo, but I find that they need a little something. For me the perfect pairing was as a side dish for my tasty teriyaki turkey burgers, and with a hint of bbq sauce. Yum!
I think I might be hooked.
