This salad is quick, easy and great for meal prepping. I highly recommend adding sriracha for extra spice if you’re a fan of heat. This recipe is very adaptable and represents a solid base to get creative with and mix and match veggies and spices you may chose to add.
Hope you enjoy!

- 1/2 cup uncooked lentils
- 2-3 cups spinach

1. Boil 1/2 cup lentils in a sauce pan on the stove for 15 minutes - add 1 teaspoon salt to the boiling water
2. In a frying pan over medium heat, pour olive oil and diced onions and peppers and cook for 3-4 minutes until slightly browned. Add 1/4 t garlic powder, salt and pepper
3. Next, add chickpeas to the onions and peppers and cook for an additional 4 minutes.
4. Once 4 minutes is up, add spinach and cover until spinach is wilted. (add a tablespoon of water to enhance steaming if needed)
5. Once lentils are done cooking, add to the chickpea salad mix, salt and pepper again, and set aside.
