  • green onions
  • garlic 
  • serrano pepper
  • broccolini 
  • ginger powder
  • cooked lentils – I get these in the refrigerator section, near the produce
  • soyaki sauce – I get this at Trader Joe’s, but you can also sub teriyaki sauce
  • cooked rice 
  • sesame seeds

Step Two: Cook the Veggies/Lentils

Since everything for this recipe is cooked in one pan, you will want to start with the veggies. You want to get them tender – with a little bit of crunch.

Heat some sesame oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add diced yellow onion, whites of green onions, garlic, serrano, broccolini and ginger powder. Cook down, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes.

Pour in the cooked lentils and soyaki sauce. Cook for another 5 minutes, or until the lentils are heated through and the veggies have absorbed some of the sauce.

Step Three: Serve

And that is it! The veggies should be tender-crisp & the lentils should be saucy. Be sure to give everything a taste before serving it up. You could always add more soyaki or cook the veggies a little longer.

This is a great weeknight dinner and the leftovers reheat great for a next day lunch!
