Will Run For Snobby Janes

snobby jane nachos

Sometimes a detoxifying smoothie or chia pudding just won't do.  Sometimes a girl just wants nachos. 

Sometimes she just wants nachos, her favourite toppings (tomatoes, avocados, lime juice) and snobby janes.

Sometimes she'll just settle for corn chips.

Snobby Janes
(serves 4-6 hungry people)

1 C dry green lentils
4 C water
1 T olive oil
3 C roughly chopped onions
3 cloves garlic (local if possible)
1 T chili powder
*1/4 tsp smoked paprika 
*1/4 tsp chipotle chili powder
1 14 oz can of diced tomatoes
1 14 oz can crushed tomatoes
1 T wet yellow mustard
3 T pure maple syrup (just say no to table syrup)

Put the lentils in a small sauce pot with water and bring to a boil.  Allow to simmer over low heat for 20 minutes.  Drain and set aside

In the meantime in a large stock pot or deep frying pan heat olive oil and then add onions and garlic until onions have softened (approximately 10 minutes).

Add the cooked lentils, spices, tomatoes, mustard and maple syrup to the stock pot.  Allow to simmer for approximately 10 minutes.

If you have the patience let the snobby jane mixture sit for approximately 10 minutes.

At this point you can either eat a giant bowl of snobby jane, put the snobby jane on a kaiser bun or pull out your favourite corn chips and some toppings  (tomatoes, avocados and cheese) and make delicious snobby jane nachos.

Or if your roommate ate all of the corn chips and left you with only crumbs you can make your own chips out of a whole grain wrap (I LOVE Ezekial wraps) unless of course she ate those too.  Lightly brush wrap with oil and bake in the oven at 350 for approximately 10-15 minutes.

* If you do not have smoked paprika or chipotle powder simply use 3T of regular chilli powder.
