Mashed lentils with radishes

Since I’ve been eating very healthy the past few weeks, I decided to make lentils with radishes. Sounded very interesting and healthy.

Lentils are full of protein and fibre, nutritious and delicious.  From main dishes to appetizers to baking, lentils can fit into any diet or cuisine. Lentil colors range from yellow to red-orange to green, brown and black.

1 onion

1 carrot

10 radishes


Combine cubed onion and cubed carrot and split lentils and cover with water.

Cut radishes either slices or cubes. When lentils are cooled down add radishes and mix.

You can eat this either warmed up or cold, it is good either way!

  1. Lentils du Puys from the Du Puys region of France never turn to mush. The grocer in the basement at the St Lawrence Market sells them. Some Bulk Barns sell them too but they are from Alberta where soil conditions are similar to those in France. Much cheaper too.
