yum. make this now.

When I first met Gregg, the guy ate two dinners. Chicken and rice with Yoshida sauce at home or a nice club sandwich at restaurants. Our first eating out date we went to Burrito Boy in Eugene. He didn't get beans in his burrito. Strange right? Turns out he hated beans. Obviously not a deal breaker but I was pretty sad about that. I am just not a big meat fan and beans are a good alternative. Slowly over these past 5 years I have added beans to dishes and I am so happy that he is now over his bean hatred. This same thing occurred with avocados. but not with bananas, he does not enjoy a fresh banana. He loved this dish of Honey Baked Lentils. Recipe found here. I used regular soy sauce instead of tamari. Used onions, carrots, and sweet potatoes. I don't have a nice pot like this (when Gregg is a doctor I am so getting myself one) for use in the oven so instead I cooked it on the stove top. Done in 45 minutes and really good.

Lilly is not eating lentils here, but Sonic tater tots!

Could there be another reason that Gregg stayed away from beans on your first date??? I'm just sayin', think practical...

The dish looks great!
