Clean Eating!

Hello all guilt-ridden readers out there! If you feel anywhere near how I do after all the indulging over the holidays, you'll really appreciate this meal.

This is one of my faves that I absolutely love. In fact, my entire family loves it. It's so simple but I can't even begin to tell you in a blog how flavourful this is. So if you're skeptical, it's really worth the try.

If you're looking for a low-fat, clean-eating recipe, this is it. I guarantee you'll find yourself making it again and again.

Tracey's Lentils and Black Beans

Olive Oil
1 small minced onion (I use my food processor)
2 teaspoons crushed garlic
2-3 cans of either Lentils, Black Beans or both (rinsed)
1 Carton Chicken broth


Lemon Juice

Heat olive oil in skillet over medium high heat. Add onion and garlic. Sautee until fragrant and lightly browned. Add all three cans of legumes and about 1 cup of broth.

Turn heat to medium-low and simmer. Once the liquid evaporates, add more broth. Keep doing this over the next hour until all broth is used. I usually use more than a carton sometimes, depending on how much time I have to work with. The longer, the better.

My kids like to sprinkle lemon or lime juice on their servings. I prefer to eat it as is, or sometimes I chop up some fresh cilantro and throw that on top.

Honestly one of my top ten dinners for sure. Enjoy!
