Easy Spiced Lentils

So I have recently decided that the best way to eat healthy is to make it easy and prepare a grain, a bean, and lots of veggies at the beginning of each week to have around for the week’s healthy meals.  Instead of having these simply steamed/boiled I decided to make em spicy and tasty to eat all on their own.  Because this is a rather small portion the spices are a bit hard to measure exactly, but I’ll try 🙂


1 Cup brown lentils,rinsed and sorted through

2.5 Cups water

1/4 Tsp Cumin
1/8 Tsp Coriander seed
1/8 Tsp Turmeric
1/4 Tsp Garlic powder
1/4 Tsp Onion powder

2 Bay leaves


Throw it all in a small pot and bring to a boil.  Lower heat and simmer covered for 45 minutes to a half hour until water cooks off and lentils begin to break down.  Stir once in a while to prevent sticking. Once done allow to cool and serve with whatever your heart desires!
