Ingredients

1 cup

2 cups
water
2  
radish
1 tablespoon
oregano
1 tablespoon
tamari
1 tablespoon
dijon mustard
1 dash

Instructions

Sort through the lentils for stones or debris; rinse thoroughly, and drain. Add lentils and water to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Partially cover and lower heat to a simmer. Cook for 30-35 minutes (or until lentils are soft when pinched between your fingers). Drain in a colander and rinse lentils briefly. Drain well.

In a small bowl, whisk together the tamari, mustard, syrup, salt and pepper. Set aside.

Combine the lentils, radishes, tomatoes and oregano in a medium sized bowl and mix well. Pour in the dressing, mix well and season to taste.
