Pickles are a must at any picnic or BBQ. Try these sweet and zesty pickled lentils, cucumbers and peppers - a great partner to grilled meats and veggies or simply enjoyed on their own.
1 cup (250 mL) cider vinegar or red wine vinegar
1 cup (250 mL) water
2 Tbsp (30 mL) soy sauce
2 Tbsp (30 mL) honey
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 -1 tsp (2-5 mL) chili flakes
3 mini cucumbers, thinly sliced
1 red or yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 cup (250 mL) cooked green lentils
1 tsp (5 mL) sesame oil
2 tsp (10 mL) toasted sesame seeds
3 Tbsp (45 mL) fresh cilantro leaves
Quick tip: This is a great make-ahead recipe. Simply keep the vegetables and lentils in the brine until ready to serve. Try adding cauliflower and thinly sliced carrots to the pickling mixture.
