  • Add in lentils, tomato sauce, and salt and pepper, and stir to combine and cook until lentils are heated through. Add in a bit of water if the mixture seems to have dried out in the cooking process.

if the mixture feels dry after cooking through, stir in a bit more water, about 1/4 cup at a time.
Mix can be frozen in a air-tight container for 3-4 months. Allow to thaw in the fridge and reheat in a microwave proof dish or on the stovetop over medium heat.
