Lentils and veggies

I made something new!

I finally found a supermarket in my neighborhood that sold cans of lentils from Italy. The only ingredient is lentils.

Tonight, I added a bunch of spices to the 400 g can of lentils, like turmeric, all purpose seasoning, ginger, and black pepper. And to that I added a bag of 300 g of frozen vegetables. And some nutritional yeast.

The can said that only 240 g of the can were solid ingredients, so I assume the liquid is the cooked liquid from the lentils. It was thicker than just water. Anyway, the calories on the can match up with what CalorieKing says, and so I believe there were 276 cal in the can. The veggies were just 99 cal. This seems like a great, filling dinner for people are trying to eat healthy and also lose weight.

The lentils were a nice substitute from the 160 g packages of brown rice I usually pour the vegetables over, much more filling, and just an extra 50 cal total. The calorie density of lentils is much less than the calorie density of brown rice.

I heated it up in my saucepan, and that was that. No preparation needed at all. Perfect for a lazy chef like me.
