“Lentil-fy your Life!” Lentil Recipes Galore – From Breakfast to Dessert!

Lentil Collage Wmk

Lentils are a super healthy and super versatile food.

Betcha didn’t know just how healthy they are, though — or the many ways you can use them! I’m here today to broaden your horizons — to lentilfy you — with some fantabulous Lentil Recipes.

Our family loves beans.

We were actually practically vegan for a good number of years, mostly because we were on a super tight budget and handling raw meat pretty much grossed me out.

I think we’ve eaten just about every bean variety known to man.

Well, maybe not every one.

But close.

Lentils are one of our favorite beans. I love the meaty taste (they make a GREAT substitute for meats if you are looking at cutting your food budget), but they also are full of good nutrition.

They’re:
- full of protein
- filled with fiber
- don’t need to be soaked (but I do recommend de-gassing them.  Read How to De-Gas Beans to make sure you don’t offend others when eating these fabulous beans.)

There’s just a lot to love about lentils.

So with that, here are some AMAZING lentil recipes.

  1. thanks for sharing our lentil flatbread :)

  2. Thanks for sharing my sprouted lentil sloppy joes! :) Sharing and pinning! :)

  3. You do not know how timely this post is for me! I was searching for good lentil recipes last night and only pinned one or two recipes that I liked. Now, here you have them all right in front of me! Thanks!

  4. Laurie Stryker says:

    So many of these recipes look amazing. It will keep me busy for awhile!

  5. Definitely never had them for breakfast and dessert, but will have to! Great recipes!

  6. Mmm! What a great roundup of recipes, Adrienne! I never even realized that lentils were gluten-free! Looks like we have some new dishes to try.

  7. Alyssa says:

    What a great bunch of recipes! Can’t wait to try some of these!

  8. Thanks so much for sharing my sprouted lentil bread recipe on this AWESOME resource for unusual lentil recipes! That lentil bread is one of my blog’s first recipes, but it’s still one of the most popular :)

  9. I LOVE lentils, but I always struggle with new ways to cook ‘em, so I am all over this roundup! Thank you for including my lentil salad with rice, apples and sausage!

  10. What a great collection of recipes! I love lentils, but I haven’t used them in any desserts before (chocolate lentil brownies sound good!). Btw, I’m hosting a link party on my blog and I’d love for you to come over and share a few recipes. I hope you have a nice weekend!

  11. What a great round up of lentil recipes. Thanks for including my Curried Rice Lentil Loaf.

  12. Thank you so much for linking up to my site Adrienne! I always love your round ups (and pin from them often!), so it’s an honor to be included.

  13. This looks fantastic! There was a restaurant in the last city we lived in that served the most delicious lentil soup I’ve ever had. It tasted like a beef stew without beef, and it had no curry or tomatoes in it. I have searched and searched for a similar recipe without luck. All the lentil stews/soups I can find always have either curry or tomatoes in them. Have any of you ever come across a recipe like this? Thanks!
