Lentil Roundup

The Recap:
The Fitnessista Gina made the famous Snobby Joes (vegan version of Sloppy Joes with lentils)

Heather over at Hangry Pants made some Lentil Burritos that were bundled in homemade WW wraps!!

Jess stopped running long enough to make some Lentil Dal for dinner! Unfortunately she wasn't too excited by the dal, anyone have any tried and true recipes for her/us??

Jen from Eating Bender highlighted an easily portable Lentil Soup :)

While I'm not sure she realized, Kath had some red lentil dal that certain fits the bill for this week's challenge!

Maggie warmed up with Lentil Leek Soup instead of a salad :) Whaddya know, cinnamon even came to the party!

Krista was Kraving Lentil & Rice Pilaf Stuffed Peppers, and now so am I!!!

Meghann graduated from the traditional preparation and came up with some Crunchy Lentil Cheese Bites.

Sabrina (RhodeyGirlTests), featured a Middle Eastern delight on her blog all week-- Umjaddarah/Mujadarah. Hopefully she hasn't gotten sick of lentils and rice!!

VeggieGirl kicked up her Snobby Joes (click for photo) with spaghetti squash, sauteed broccoli rabe, spinach, and garlic. Holy yum is right!!

And we've got my contribution of Sausage w/Lentils & Sauteed Pears.

The Prize:
What else, but Lentil Cookies! :)


*drum roll please*
