We had some sauce leftover from Nikos's perfect xtapodi stifado so I decided to cook up some lentils and blend together. This recipe is FANTASTIC and a great idea to stretch your dinner into two evenings. Lentils are a great source of iron, protein and fiber and contain six minerals, two B-vitamis and virtually no fat. This bean fills you up instead of out!!
