How to Make Lentil Bowls for Meal Prep

  • It’s also an easy dish to meal prep, you can make the eggs and lentils ahead if you’re cooking them yourself, and add the avocado and tomatoes the day you plan to eat it.
  • To make prep even easier, make a batch of hard boiled eggs in your Instant Pot (affiliate link)! Instead Pot Hard Boiled Egg recipe here.
  • If I buy my lentils precooked, they usually already come seasoned with salt, but if you make them yourself, be sure to add salt to them after. If you don’t like spicy food, you can skip the hot sauce, it will still be good!
  • Pre-cooked lentils are usually found in the produce dept by the pre-cut veggies/lettuce or near the non-dairy proteins. They are sold under Trader Joe’s name and Melissa Produce.

  1. I’m sorry if this was asked already, but are canned lentils ok for this? Shouldn’t I just be able to rinse and drain them? I’ve had this before with non-canned lentils and it was sooooooooo good.

  2. Can you help me understand how this is 2 points on blue? Lentils, lime, tomatoes are free. 1 oz avocado is 1.  Excited to try it!

  3. I’ve been looking for a tasty recipe for the green lentils I bought. I made them in the instant pot with onion, garlic, and chicken stock. I used them warm, fresh from cooking with Italian parsley and a squeeze of lemon juice instead of the cilantro and lime. It was delicious. I’ll be having it again for lunch tomorrow. 

  4. I was originally skeptical of lentils, but after making it on Monday for dinner, I was blown away. I made more eggs for lunch on Tuesday and shared this recipe far and wide. Thank you, Gina, this was amazing!

    The only modification I made was I added 1 cup of lentils and ate the entire bowl by myself (personal caloric requirements).

    Keep up the good work!

  5. Awesome recipe!! Very filling and satisfying. I’ve passed it on to all my lentil loving friends and colleagues!!!

  6. I was slightly skeptical that this would fill me up, but it was absolutely perfect as a lunch. I was not hungry at all in the afternoon like I’d expected to be. I made it almost exactly as written, using canned cooked lentils to save some time. I also subbed in sriracha as I it had on hand. It was very tasty and objectively speaking very healthy. Quick to put together as well, if you use pre-cooked lentils. Kudos, Gina. I’ll be making this for lunches every so often.

  7. I had this for lunch and it was great. I’m six months pregnant with low blood sugar and this was a perfect choice. I cooked the lentils (brown /green) in the instant pot. (I did pot in pot, 1 cup rinsed but not soaked lentils, 1.5 -1.75 cups water, salt and black pepper in a glass bowl on the trivet, with two cups water in the pot liner for 8 minutes) I had sriracha with it.

  8. This recipe is amazing. So simple, delicious and filling. 

  9. Hi, I have never made lentils before or seen them at the store. Can you tell us how to prepare them? 

  10. Hey Gina! this looks amazing. Do you have a recipe for the lentils (I would rather make them at home than buy them) Thanks!

  11. I wasn’t sure I would like the flavor combination, but I was right to trust you, Gina! I misread the recipe and ate 1 1/2 cups lentils. But. Freestyle to the rescue! Also used only one egg,, just because. Loved the bright flavor of tomato. Also added a lot of cilantro, because I love it. Still learning to cook lentils to get the texture I want (cooked, but not mushy) but this was good anyway. Just cooked extra lentils for another day!

  12. This was surprisingly so Good! For as simple as it is! Great low point meal!!

  13. Am starting to use more lentils. Was a little unsure of this receipe. Am not real fond of avacado. Was happily suprised with the combination. Lime juice brings it all together. Will add to my lunch menu.

  14. So unique and deliciously filling!

  15. I have been making this for lunch for weeks and I love it.  It is such an easy dish to make and during a busy week, it’s a life saver!  Thank you for sharing this.

  16. I really do like this salad, quite tasty and very filling. Will make often.

  17. This sounds delicious. i’m so glad that I found it on a search for things to do with cooked lentils. I bet that it would also be good with eggs dropped into the lentils and cooked in the oven for a few minutes.

    I love your recipes!
