Carrots and onion


  • 1 cup of dried brown or green lentils
  • 2 cups of water or vegetable broth
  • 1 medium carrot, finely diced
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of vinegar (red wine or balsamic)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: Fresh herbs like parsley or thyme, and a squeeze of lemon juice for extra flavor
  • Optional: Add some steamed rice if you like extra carbs in your meal


  1. Cook the Lentils:

    • Rinse the lentils under cold water.

Traditional cooking pan

  • In a medium saucepan, combine the lentils and water or vegetable broth.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer uncovered for 20-30 minutes until the lentils are tender but still hold their shape.
  • Drain any excess liquid and let the lentils cool.

Instant Pot

Add the lentis and extra water inside the pot.
Cook as Pressure coocking - low 10 minutes plus 10 minutes of natural release

  1. Sauté the Vegetables:

    • While the lentils are cooking, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a pan over medium heat.
    • Sauté the onion and garlic until they are soft and translucent, about 3-5 minutes.
    • Add the diced carrot and cook for an additional 5 minutes until the carrot is just tender.
    • Let the mixture cool.

  2. Assemble the Salad:

    • In a large bowl, combine the cooked lentils, sautéed vegetables, and diced tomato.
    • Drizzle with the remaining olive oil and vinegar.
    • Season with salt and pepper to taste, and add any optional fresh herbs or lemon juice.

  3. Pack for the Workplace:

    • If preparing this salad in advance, pack it in an airtight container.
    • The flavors will meld as it sits, so it can be made the night before and refrigerated.
    • Before heading out, make sure the salad is well sealed to prevent any leaks.

  4. Enjoy:

    • Your Lentil Salad is ready to be enjoyed at work! It’s a great source of protein and fiber, and the combination of vegetables adds a satisfying crunch.

This hearty and nutritious salad will keep well and can be enjoyed cold or at room temperature if you use oil and not butter, making it ideal for a busy workday.
