Ingredients

  • 1 cup dried green lentils, rinsed and picked over
  • 2 cups spinach, chopped
  • 1 medium red onion, diced
  • 1 cup dried cranberries, roughly chopped
  • 1/3 cup capers, drained
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts, lightly toasted

Vinaigrette

  • 1 cup dried green lentils, rinsed and picked over
  • 2 cups spinach, chopped
  • 1 medium red onion, diced
  • 1 cup dried cranberries, roughly chopped
  • 1/3 cup capers, drained
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts, lightly toasted
  • 1/3 cup cold pressed extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • pinch of kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method

  • STEP 1
    Rinse lentils well and drain. Place in a pot and cover with 3 cups of water, bring to a boil, reduce to simmer. Check on the lentils after 15 minutes and if they are al dente, they are ready. You do not want overcooked, mushy lentils.
  • STEP 2
    While the lentils are simmering, make the vinaigrette by placing all ingredients in a jar with a tight-fitting lid and shake to combine.
  • STEP 3
    When the lentils are cooked, remove from heat, drain and place under cold running water to stop them from continuing to cook.
  • STEP 4
    Place lentils in a large serving bowl. Add onion, spinach, capers, pine nuts and cranberries and toss with dressing. Serve and enjoy!
