Made this up yesterday:
2 cans organic garbanzo beans
white balsamic vinegar*
Boil the dried lentils until just tender.
While they are boiling, chop the onion and sauteed it in the olive oil and butter. Leave out the butter for vegetarian/vegan folks. Caramelize the onion a little. Add the garlic for the last minute.
Drain the lentils, place in a heat proof bowl, add the onions and garlic, add the two drained cans of garbanzo beans.
Put washed spinach in the heated frying pan and cooked it until it is just wilted. Add that to the salad.
Add vinegar, sesame oil, salt and pepper to taste.
* I used white balsamic because it was in front. Use whatever vinegar you like!
