Daily Vegan Lunch for May 10, 2013: Lentil and Greens Burritos

vegan lentil and greens burritos

INGREDIENTS:

Tortillas, any kind (I used whole wheat tortillas)

1 cup brown lentils
3 cups vegetable broth
1.5 cups chopped onions
4 – 5 cups mixed organic greens or spinach
1 cup minced parsley
2 cloves garlic

Balsamic or apple cider vinegar, to taste
Salt to taste

Combine lentils and 1 cup broth in a pot. Bring to a boil on high heat and turn down immediately. Add another cup of broth and simmer on medium heat for 20 minutes until liquid is absorbed. Add onions. Add last cup of broth and simmer for 10 – 20 more minutes. Once water is almost entirely absorbed, add greens/spinach and parsley. Stir until greens wilt. Add garlic and salt if needed.

Add vinegar to taste. I used about 1/4 cup because I like vinegar.

Eat plain, over rice, or rolled into burritos. I like lentils cold as much as I like them heated.
