A healthy and satisfying alternative to traditional "refried beans"

Yields6 Servings
Prep Time30 minsCook Time1 hrTotal Time1 hr 30 mins

 2 cups dry lentils
 3 cups low sodium chicken or vegetable stock
 3 cups water
 ¼ cup olive oil
 salt and pepper to taste

1

In a large pot bring chicken stock and water to a boil. Add lentils, cover with a tight fitting lid, reduce heat to a simmer and cook until they are tender for 45-50 Minutes.

2

When lentils are tender remove from heat and add olive oil. Use an immersion blender to puree the lentils or pour into a regular blender and blend until smooth. If using a blender, make sure to leave lid cracked to allow heat to escape (this is important, trust me).
