Here's two:

Lentil salad

- 1 Lb lentils – cooked, drained – set aside
- 6 scallions, chopped (I’ve also used a small red onion with good results too)
- garlic minced
- Jar of roasted red peppers, chopped
- ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
- 3-4 tbs red wine vinegar
- ½ cup fresh dill
- ½ lb crumbled feta
- salt and pepper to taste

Mix and let marinate for 30 minutes.

Lentil Shepherd’s Pie

- 1 bag lentils, cooked/drained
- 5-6 medium-large potatoes – cooked and prepare as mashed potatoes
- 2 celery stalks, minced
- 1 small can tomato sauce
- 1 large yellow onion, chopped
- olive oil for sautéing
- favorite herbs – Ie, Basil. Oregano, parsley

Preheat oven to 350

Sautee onion, celery, and garlic in olive oil. Add cooked lentils, tomato sauce, herbs, salt and pepper. Pour into baking pan (I use a 9 x 13) and cover with the mashed potatoes. Bake about 25 minutes
