Lentils During Lent

My picky family likes lentil soup and lentil chili, so I tried just plain old baked lentils. Only my 7-year-old tasted them, but she loved them over rice. They were pretty darn good, I must say.

Honey Baked Lentils
1/2 lb green lentils
1 bay leaf
2 1/2 cups water
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/8 tsp ground ginger
1/2 T soy sauce
1/4 c chopped onions
1/2 c water
2 1/2 T honey
In a saucepan, combine 2 1/2 c water, bay leaf, and salt. Bring to a boil; cover and reduce heat, simmering for 30 minutes. Discard the bay leaf.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, combine dry mustard, ginger, soy sauce, onions, and 1/2 c water. Add to lentils, and pour honey on top.

Cover and bake 45 min. or so. Serve over rice.
