Lentil Burritos

Of course, the downside of opening a 16 oz packet of Trader Joe's steamed lentils and only using 1/4 cup for Lentils on Garlic Toast with Greens, Beets, & Goat Cheese is reading the 'Refridgerate and consume within 2 days of opening' message on the package.

OK, so it's a 3 day lentils-o-rama challenge. Day 2 produced this divine Lentil burrito with onions, cumin seeds, poblano chile, rice, salsa, guacamole, topped with cilantro chutney and sour cream. Wrapped in a handmade flour tortilla, the cumin seeds made this dish a standout!

Very nice!
Next, think about a lentil salad. Toss the lentils with olive oil, vinegar and thinly sliced scallions. Pile them on top of (or underneath) some greens dressed with a slightly different flavor. Grab some rosemary blossoms if there are any in your garden or landscaping and sprinkle them over.

Lentil burritos -- what a great idea! I've got a Trader Joe's list in the works and I'll add those lentils to it.

I adore lentil tacos/burritos... and am very intrigued by CC's mention of rosemary blossoms.. I've grown rosemary for years and have never seen a blossom!
