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. Thia was lunch today. The lentils were cooked in an electric pressure cooker with bay leaf, dehydrated onions and minced garlic. I did cook additional lentils to make this again this week. Delicious and filling.

  2. Absolutely delicious! I would have never thought to put a hard boiled egg with lentils. I used siracha in place of the choula. I cooked 1 cup dry lentils in my aroma rice cooker with 2 2/3cups of water,  1tsp cumin, 2TB dried parsley, and salt and pepper. Set it to the white rice setting, stirred half way through and it came out perfect! 

  3. Love it!
    Thank you Gina for all that you do!

    PS- Any chance of also noting the Smart Point values of your recipes from the WW program prior to Freestyle too? Many of us still follow that….

  4. Hi!
    This sounds great!  I’m confused by the nutrition info though…
    It says yields 2 servings – but serving size is one bowl..,
    So, to clarify it’s 347 calories for 1/2 the recipe?

    Please help!  🙂

      1. I used Trader Joe’s Whole Green Lentils and cooked them. When I calculate it I get 540 calories just for the 3/4 cup (1 serving) and not including the other items. Also when I search for green lentils in My Fitness Pal it also came up with the 540 calories. Can you let me know why this is so off from your nutritional facts calculation of only 347 calories per serving?

    1. Not sure why but when I calculate cooked green lentils in My Fitness Pal and from the calculations of the Trader Joe Small green lentils (cooked) they both equal 540 calories per 3/4 cup and that is not including all the other ingredients. You are getting 347 total calories per serving. Can you tell me why mine is so off?

  5. My boyfriend and I made this for dinner the other night. It was a hit! Very simple dish to make and a great way to get protein as a vegetarian. 🙂

    We did not add the lime, but instead added some traditional Indian spices to the lentils and I sprinkled just a tiny bit of Queso Fresco on top. I will absolutely be making this one again!

  6. I made these for lunches this week. I got the lentils from Trader Joe’s and substituted sriracha for the Cholula. Absolutely delicious and very filling!

  7. Eating right now and it’s fanfreakintastic. Do you think this might still taste good layered in a jar?

  8. This is sooooooooo good. I am eating it now for lunch. I have never eaten lentils in this way. I brought the pre-cooked lentils from Trader Joe’s and they are perfect for this and made the prep even easier for this dish. This is definitely on my rotation for lunch. I am so full off of this meal and it is delicious! The hot sauce added takes it over the top! Thank you Gina.

  9. Thank you for al your great recipes, I’ve been a fan for a few years now 🙂 Quick question can we replace the lentils by any other kinds of bean like navy beans? (I’m allergic to lentils)

    This might be a silly question, but I guess this can be served hot or cold?  How are you recommending it, Gina?

  11. If you have a smoker (or know someone who has one…), I highly recommend using smoked eggs versus just the hard boiled ones. The smoke eggs will add an incredible flavour to what is already and very tasty dish!! 🙂

  12. Hi Gina. I love your recipes but have a question re nutrition breakdown. Why aren’t the saturated fats listed?

    I had this for breakfast instead of letting nch today. Never thought to pair my favorite egg sandwich ingredients with lentils. I especially want to thank you for making your recipes do easy to follow.

  14. I love how simple this is and can’t believe I never thought of it! I have all of the ingredients in my kitchen already, and I’m having this for lunch today!

  15. Thank you, Gina. I’m hypoglycemic but do well with lentils. I always have hard cook eggs and avocado on hand and the tomatoes are coming in like crazy. This is great to get away from my basic salads. Since I have to have a higher amount of fat I am going to marinate the lentils in olive oil and lime juice first.

  16. Hi, Gina. You and your work have saved my life 🙂
    I joined WW 3 months ago and have been successful so far. But I ran out of ideas of food to eat that was real. I don’t like all the fake food filled with chemicals (low fat this, no fat that–salad dressings are the worst). My WW leader told us about your site. I was thrilled with what I found! I just received my order of your cookbook and I am so excited to start reading and cooking.  Thanks for including WW smart points. 

    1. Rude! Why is it a joke? Only thing here that is points on WW is the avocado yet its packed with protien. Recipes dont have to complicated or even require skill or cooking. This site specifically focuses on losing weight AND works with WW. This is a simple recipe that someone can pack for lunch.
