“Imperfect” BLT Crimson Lentils
- 1 cup red lentils or dry crimson
- 3 cups stock or water
- 5 slices bacon thick cut
- 3 stalks celery diced
- 3 Roma tomatoes chopped
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- scallions optional for topping
- Preheat the oven to 400°. Lay the bacon on a baking sheet, and bake for 15 minutes or until desired crispness (the crispier the better!).
- Meanwhile, add the lentils, water, and 1 tsp of salt to a large pot. Heat on high until boiling. Once boiling, turn the heat to medium, and cover the pot. Let the lentils simmer for 20 minutes, or until tender.
- Once the lentils are cooked, chop the bacon, and add it along with the veggies and remaining spices to the lentils. Stir to combine!
