Remember the plethora of lentil recipes that you saw on Carrots ‘N’ Cake a few weeks ago? Well, now that you have a few ideas, here’s a chance for you to win a lifetime supply of dried peas and lentils from the USA Dry Peas, Lentils & Chickpeas Council!


To enter: Just leave a comment on this post about your favorite lentil or dry pea recipe. I’ll randomly pick a winner tomorrow morning.

Good luck!



  1. I love dried peas! My absolute favorite though is Indian chana masala-a classic Indian dish 🙂 yumm…

  2. The only way I ever ate lentils until I moved out of my parent’s place was in a dish my mother used to make. She would make a stew with lentils, bacon and pieces of sausage and serve it with rice and a fried egg on top of the lentils. I know it doesn’t sound very nutritious but it was DELICIOUS. I actually thought it was the only way of eating lentils before! 🙂

  3. Lentils and peas are a wonderful protein that is healthy for our bodies. So easy to prepare and so much variety of recipes can be used. You can never get bored with them. Yum!!!

  4. I LOVE lentils – they make vegetarian meals taste ‘meaty’ and they’re full of nutritious yumminess. My fav is the super delicious lentil veg lasagne. Or is it the red lentil meatless meatloaf? Drool. I’d be in heaven if I could win this however I’m not in the US so I’ll just dream about it lol

  5. I have an awesome recipe for ginger lentil carrot soup…just made it a few days ago for my daughter who was coming down with a bit of a cold. I mainly use dried peas, beans and lentils in soups and stews. I’ve honestly never met a dried legume that I didn’t like 🙂

  6. I don’t currently have any peas or lentil recipes that I make. I need to find a way to add more protein to my diet and have been thinking that lentils may be the way to go. If I won I’d sure start looking for recipes to use them.

  7. I have a recipe for a soup made with lentils, carrots and sausages that I love and have even gotten my extremely picky husband to enjoy!

  8. We love the most all beans and the big Lima beans with ham hocks also love using lentils in soup to add the extra goodness! Yummmyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

  9. My favorite way to eat lentils is still in some good old split pea soup! I like mine on the thick side, seasoned with hambone leavings.

  10. I adore dried peas and lentils! Just made an Indian veg. soup that has dried split peas in it with lots of ginger, greens, and vegetables. We also love a French lentil salad with escarole and good bread on the side. Yum.

  11. I make the easiest curry EVAH with split red lentils. I’m impatient, so I go with the fastest cooking type available, and then just toss the following in the same pot or pan in this order:

    1. If you want a meat as part of your meal, cook whatever you want on med-high until edges are caramelized, but center is slightly under-done. Remove from pot/pan and set aside.

    2. Garlic and onion. As much as you want. Cook that until the onions are translucent. Don’t burn the garlic! Remove from pot/pan and set aside.

    3. Frozen stir fry veggies – cook on med-high until edges are slightly caramelized. Don’t worry if they’re not done. They will be.

    4. Pour in one can of tomato sauce, one can of evaporated milk, a healthy scoop of your favorite curry, and/or chilis. Add the other stuff back into the pot, and simmer until done. Too thick? Loosen with a little veggie/chicken broth. Too thin? Add a few more veggies. They’ll cook in the sauce.

    5. While the sauce is simmering, bring veggie/chicken broth to a boil and throw in your lentils in the appropriate proportions (available on side of bag). Finish up and set aside.

    6. Put down a bed of greens – spring, spinach, kale, whatever you want. Scoop a helping of lentils in the middle. Spoon veggies and sauce over the lentils.

    7. Munch.

    Side note: By simply changing out the type of veggies and spices, this can become a completely different dish:

    For Italian, use mushrooms, eggplant, bell peppers and zucchini, with basil, oregano, thyme and maybe rosemary.

    For French, use mushrooms, green beans, cauliflower, and peas, with thyme, marjoram, savory, bay leaf, and tarragon.

    For Thai, keep the stir fry veggies and curry but add Thai basil, a dash of ginger, and Kaffir lime leaves. Toss some peanuts on top.


  12. I love lentils! they bring back my childhood memories when my grandma was making them with different spices along with butter and hot bread for breakfast!

  13. Pea soup! we make it at least once a month. When we make lentils, we like to mix several kinds and make a basic soup, then serve it over brown rice w/parmesan cheese.

  14. Lentelsoup with knock wurst and crusty Bread on Saturdays when I grew up in Germany awesome meal still today I just love it.

  15. I have too many favourites……french lentils, chicken stock, butter, s&p, pea soup….I am constantly on the lookout and try new recipes, so too many that could be favourites!!!

  16. My favorite split pea and ham soup recipe is from our local coop – from the deli.
    I would love to win the lentils, peas etc.

  17. I have my own little fabulous split pea soup that I eat all winter. Cooked in the crockpot. All kinds of veggies mixed in! Delicious and vegan! 🙂

  18. Raising 2 teenage boys and ned ways to incorporate more protein into their diets.
    Mostly use with rice or in soup.

  19. simple old split pea and ham, I make it with shredded carrot and small diced potatoes in it, love making it when the kids come home

  20. My favorite is my Mamá’s Lentil soup. Lots of garlic and cubed potatoes. I could eat it for days. A friend of mine adds an egg just before serving so you have a poached egg in your soup. Wonderful.
    I also LOVE pea soup (although I don’t really like plain peas).
    I am not a big fan of food blogs but I am really liking yours. I got the link from Cooks Club of America.

  21. I just recently rent through a very serious health scare. I have C.O.P.D. and was hospitalized with breathing issues, while there on a scan they discovered that a nodule in my right lung that was diagnosed in 2007 had grown, they suspected lung cancer! Praise be to God after thorough testing no cancer was found! I also have weight issues that impede my breathing. Upon release from the hospital I made major changes in my eating habits, and have begun a new lifestyle as a vegetarian! Some fish and chicken, but mostly wonderful vegetarian bean dishes! I am also addicted to humus! A lifetime supply of beans would be a dream come true!

  22. Love Lentils in a casserole dish with Eggplant. Also my family loves pea soup. Running to the store quite often, because I run out of peas.

  23. Lentil brownies are the best no one knew what was in them and the got rave reviews from everyone I fed them to.
