Maple Lentils

Maple syrup is one the best foods native to North America. It’s simply too good to be enjoyed only at breakfast. These lentils, paired with rice, make a delicious, savory, maple infused dinner. Grade B syrup works best in this recipe as grade A’s more delicate flavor will get lost in the shuffle.
