This recipe is so versatile can be as much or as little as you want it to be. Put it on pasta, rice, a baked potato, in a toastie- you can literally do anything with it. It’s not the prettiest or fanciest of meals, but it will fill you up and keep you going.
The version I make with ingredients from Lidl comes in at 19.8g of protein. However, whatever brand of ingredients you use will still give you roughly the same protein content. I tend to mix up the spices every time I make it, but I normally dump in a load of chilli powder, basil, salt, and black pepper.
1 can of l green lentils
1 can of taco beans
How to make:
- Add all your ingredients to a heavy based pan and heat on medium for about 20 minutes, stirring regularly.
- It’s that simple, I’m not kidding. You’re done. Good, eh?
I hope you enjoy this recipe, as extremely basic as it is. How obvious is it that I invented it when my student loan ran out? Keep an eye out for more Meat-Free recipes from Nerve in future every Monday(ish).
