If you’re looking to add more meatless dishes to your repertoire, here’s one that will satisfy even the meat lovers in your family. The wheat germ adds texture and flavor and boosts the nutrients.

Serves 4 (About 1 cup each)

1 cup French green lentils or black Beluga lentils

1 bay leaf

1/2 onion, peeled and halved

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

1 cup shredded carrots

3 tablespoons chopped red onion

3 tablespoons chopped parsley

1 cup halved red and yellow cherry tomatoes

1/4 salt, or to taste

1/4 teaspoon pepper, or to taste

1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

3 tablespoons Kretschmer Original Toasted Wheat Germ

Rinse lentils and pick out any stones. In medium saucepan cover lentils with water by 3 inches, add bay leaf and onion and bring to boil. Reduce to simmer and cook until lentils are tender, adding more water if necessary, about 30 minutes. Drain and discard onion and bay leaf.

Place lentils in large bowl and add all ingredients except cheese and wheat germ. Mix well.

Gently stir in cheese and wheat germ. Serve immediately or refrigerate and bring back to room temperature before serving.
