Sautéed Lentils with Zucchini and Butternut Squash
“If you have to eat on the go, why not take some homemade food instead of buying something in the supermarket or cafeteria? It's sure to be healthier and you’ll save money. This recipe is just perfect for such moments.”
1 small jar
Peel and mince the garlic. Then wash and cut the zucchini and butternut squash into small dice.
Heat a little olive oil in a skillet and fry the garlic. After 1 minute, add the diced zucchini and squash and fry lightly over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring often.
Then wash and drain the lentils and add to the skillet. Season with a little salt and your favorite spice. We used cumin and it was delicious. Lightly fry over medium heat for 4-5 minutes, stirring often.
In the meantime, fill a pan with water and bring to a boil. Then add a little salt and pasta of choice, preferably short-cut pasta such as macaroni, orzo, or conchigliette (small shells). Couscous or rice will work as well. Follow the instructions and cook for the time shown on the package.
Fill one side of a bowl or your lunch box with the lentils and vegetables, and fill the other side with the pasta. A really delicious meal, right?
