Red Lentil Pasta with Mushrooms, Onions, and Yams

You say that you need more protein?  Want to eat more of a plant based diet?  Cool!  This dish is for you!  Lentils are loaded with protein and fiber and Trader Joe’s is offering a Red Lentil Pasta that you will want to make a weekly staple for sure!  What makes this dish unique is that I use the balsamic dressing from my recipe page that doesn’t have any oil.  It’s filled with garlic, ginger, and coconut aminos, which makes it taste like a soy sauce.  This dish has an asian flare and will spice up your lunch or dinner anytime!  My kids love it too!


1 bag of Red Lentil Pasta

1/2 large red onion

1 yam

1 cup of chopped crimini mushrooms

Cracked pepper

No oil Balsamic dressing from my recipes page  – about 3-4 tablespoons


Bring large pot of water to a boil and add lentils.  It will only take about 6-7 minutes to cook the lentils.  Drain and set aside.

Get a medium sauce pan and add onions, yam and mushrooms with a little water.  Saute for a about 8-10 minutes.  Take off burner and let cool.  Add about 3-4 tablespoons of balsamic dressing  and stir.  Pour mixture over lentils in a bowl and voila!  You are done!
