Honey Baked Lentils

Here is a tasty, yet frugal and healthy dish to make this winter.

What you need:
9 x13 pan oiled with 2 T. of olive oil
garlic press
sharp knife and chopping board
oven preheated to 350*

Honey Baked Lentils
16 oz. lentils (any color) soaked overnight
1 small onion sliced thinly
4 large carrots, peeled and chopped
2 cloves of garlic, pressed or minced
1 t. ground ginger
4 T. honey
2-4 T. soy sauce (depends on your taste buds)
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups of water (or broth)

Put all the ingredients into the 9 x 13 pan. Stir it around to mix in the seasonings.
Bake uncovered at 350* for 90 minutes. Serve with brown rice if you want a complete protein or add a little cooked chicken. You could also use chicken broth instead of water. You can also add in other vegetables.
