Lentil Bruschetta

1 cup uncooked black (puy) lentils or if wish to purchase 1lb package of precooked lentils

6 Roma Tomatoes diced with juices

8-10 basil leaves, chopped 

1/4 red onion, diced small 

1-1/2 teaspoons of minced garlic 

2 tsp of sea salt or pink salt 

pepper to taste 

1 tablespoon really good balsamic vinegar 

2 tablespoons of Olive oil 


Mix all the ingredients in a pretty bowl and servie with rice crackers, regular crackers, chips, pita or bread. My kids love this and they don't even realize all the goodness they are receiving. I also bring this to parties for a healthy and delicious dish to share. I learned about it when someone brought a pre-made dip from Trader Joe's and i liked it but could sense the heavy oils and too much salt so I decided to try it from fresh ingredients myself. Enjoy!
