Lentils are a great source of plant protein, help lower cholesterol, aid in healthy digestion and even stabilize blood sugar. Plus, this salad recipe is just as good. Add in the goat cheese and you’ve got a hit, even for high society.


  • 12 oz of cooked lentils
  • 1 diced organic white onion, medium sized
  • 4 minced garlic cloves
  • Sea salt
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 oz crumbled goat cheese
  • 1/4 cup minced chives
  • 2 cups of greens (preferably organic arugula)


Sauté onions and 2 cloves garlic in olive oil until fragrant. Add in lentils, salt and 1 cup of filtered water.

Bring to a boil then simmer for 10 minutes until warmed thoroughly.

Drain lentils and return to pot.

Stir in vinegar, remaining garlic, goat cheese, chives, salt and pepper to taste and olive oil.

Line plates with arugula and top with the lentil mixture. Serve warm.
