This Green Lentils Mushrooms & Onions recipe is a must try! Marcus and I recently got back from vacation and we wanted to get back on track with healthy eating. So we are trying to follow the Eat to Live plan. That is how this healthy meal came about.
This recipe is super easy, budget friendly, vegan, gluten free and oil free! It really only calls for a few simple ingredients. It didn’t last long in our house at all. I wish I had doubled the batch! I will definitely be making it again in the near future.

Green Lentils Mushrooms & Onions
Green Lentils Mushrooms Onions
- 1 yellow onion, sliced thin
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 lb mushrooms, sliced (I used baby bellas)
- 2 cups green lentils
- 4 cups water
- 2 tsp sage
- Sea Salt to taste
In a large saute pan, on medium heat, add a small amount of water and the onions. Cook until the onions become translucent. Then add the garlic and mushrooms and continue to cook for a couple more minutes until the mushrooms start to soften.
Lastly, add in the lentils, sage, salt and water. Cover and let cook about 15 minutes or until the green lentils soften. I like my lentils with a little bite, so I didn't cook them as long.
This should last at least a week in the fridge. You can also freeze it for several months. Enjoy!
