Bulk up Your Bruschetta!!

It’s Friday!!  Are you having any parties over the weekend?  Having people over to watch the game?  Looking for an easy and healthy appetizer you can share with friends?

I love this because it is super cheap, easy, healthy and can be put together ahead of time making it great to take on a picnic!  All ingredients can be picked up at your local Trader Joe’s!  My good friend Heather Helfand first introduced me to this delicious recipe!

Ingredients:

  • 1 jar of Trader Joe’s Bruschetta IMG_20130928_170440_492
  • 1 box Trader Joe’s cooked lentils
  • 1 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • **Optional 1/4 crumbled goat cheese or chopped vegan cheese
  • 1 bag Trader Joe’s Veggie ChipsIMG_20130928_170428_817

Directions: (why this is sooo amazing! Easy as 1-2-3)

  1. Open the lentils and place them into a large mixing bowl.  Break apart the lentil chunks.
  2. Mix seasonings, bruschetta, and cheese (if you would like).
  3. Enjoy!IMG_20130928_170256_909

So good my dad (Mr. I Must Have Meat in Every Dish) scarfed it down! I didn’t tell him the dish was vegan/vegetarian but he was enjoying it to much I couldn’t break it to him ;).
