Actually, I've had the recipe for quite a while now. I got it on MDC and I vaguely remember trying it before and not liking it. But I decided to give it another try and tonight, I had excellent results. Here's the recipe:
Honey Baked Lentils
1 cup lentils, soaked for a few hours (I used brown)
2 cups water or vegetable stock
2 tbsp honey or maple syrup (I used half turbinado and half maple syrup)
2 tbsp. soy sauce
2 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp powdered ginger
1 clove garlic finely minced
1 small onion chopped
salt and pepper to taste (I used 1 tsp sea salt and 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients in a glass baking dish. Bake for 90 minutes. (The original recipe says to bake covered but I didn't and it came out just fine.) I added carrots to mine but I imagine you could add a variety of root vegetables and it would be really good. I also doubled the recipe which fit in a 9" x 14" Pyrex glass baking dish. It serves about eight adults.
To go with the honey baked lentils, I made seasoned brown rice. I just tossed 2 cups of rice in the rice cooker with 5 cups of vegetable broth, a pat of Earth Balance, about 1/4 tsp. sea salt and half of a large onion that I chopped. Don't have a rice cooker? Ever heard about baking rice? I saw Alton Brown do this on his show years ago and seriously, it revolutionized my brown rice cooking life! The rice comes out perfectly cooked and wonderful.
(Don't mind my chipped plate . . . I don't know why it's my favorite plate. I just love it.)
It was a delicious and easy dinner and I am definitely adding it to my repertoire.
