Roasted Green Chili Lentils

What you need: 

1/2 cup uncooked lentils

3 cloves garlic
1 Anaheim chili
Salt and pepper, to taste

What you do: 

1) Soak green chili for about 5 minutes in water. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Place chili in oven and roast until skin separates from the chili. Once it is finished, place in a plastic bag to steam for about 10 minutes. Peal skin and remove seeds. Dice and put aside.

I loved this recipe!  It has simple ingredients and the taste was so good!  I used red onion instead of white, since I had it on hand.  The lentils really absorbed the taste of the green chili and red onion for a sweet, nutty taste.  I ate it in a tortilla and also over vegan mashed potatoes.  Yummy!
