Here’s another request from my faithful, beautiful, lean, and sexy Live Lean TV viewers…well actually this request was from a dude so I’ll just call him faithful and lean!
The request was for a cooking video showing how to create a delicious but healthy dish using LENTILS!
Now I admit, I don’t use lentils very often. I don’t know why…maybe it was because I never had them as a kid…who knows! But what I do know is lentils are loaded with fiber and when complemented with brown rice…make a complete protein that contains all the essential muscle building amino acids. Thumbs up to muscle building…especially if you’re a female!
So rather than start the recipe creation process from scratch, I reached out to my friend Lindsay, at http://www.theleangreenbean.com. She was glad to hook us up with her Meatless Meatballs recipe. High five Lindsay. Be sure to show her some love by checking out her site. She has tonnes of great stuff including her Foodie Pen Pals program!
Alright back to the lentils…how do we turn these weird looking things into a delicious recipe that matches the consistency and taste of real meat! Follow along with my cooking video!
Here are the ingredients and instructions…
– 2 cups of cooked lentils
– 2 eggs
