So remember when I mentioned you should check out the site Greatist? This delish lentils with roasted beets and carrots recipe popped up on their home page a couple days later and I knew I had to try it out. I was drawn to the super simple recipe list and knew this was going to cost me very little to make. I hit up my local Sprouts and spent approximately $3.50 for the lentils and the produce, which included an organic beet. I also have extra carrots to spare!
I used almost an entire lemon and the whole salad turned pink from the beets. I like beets a lot so I really enjoyed this. It was extremely easy to make and it was a great side dish for two people with leftovers for lunch the next day. Beets and lentils are the superfoods packed into this salad. And for $3.50, how could you not try it???
