Fast, Cheap ’n Easy Sprouted Lentils

Tomatoes are a great way to add lycopene to any meal. Cooking tomatoes releases the lycopene from the fibers of the tomato, making it easier for your body to absorb it. Lycopene has been shown to prevent cancer, and can also be found in other red fruits and vegetables, such as red carrots, watermelons and papayas.

2 cups sprouted lentils
6 cups water or low-sodium broth
1 fresh tomato
In a pot, add sprouted lentils to boiling water or broth and cook for 5 minutes.

Turn off heat. Dice tomato and add into pot. Cover with lid and let sit for 2 minutes.

Drain excess broth if not wanted and feel free to add fresh cut herbs to taste.
