Lentil Bruschetta

This is an incredibly easy and versatile dish to make, not to mention fast! I have used this Lentil Bruschetta in a variety of ways - as an appetizer spooned over crusty baguette bread or crackers, mixed in with rice for a complete vegetarian meal, and as in this healthy dinner, combined with pasta.

What makes it so quick to create is both the pre-made bruschetta sauce and the pre-cooked lentils; of course, you can boil your own lentils and make your own homemade bruschetta, but when in a hurry nothing beats a few shortcuts!

With 15 grams of protein and 10 grams of fiber per serving (this pasta meal serves 6), you don't even need to add anything else (except maybe a sprinkling of toasted pine nuts - yum!) However, it would also be outstanding with a small side of grilled chicken, fish or shrimp.

If you come up with another way to use this Lentil Bruschetta, let us know!
