If you have followed me or you know me, you know I am often inspired when I walk into a Trader Joe’s. I love it and love their products. I sometimes think I am their biggest fan.
I had the opportunity to sample this Trader Joe’s recipe at one of my local Trader Joe’s some time ago, and I decided to recreate it at home and serve with all natural plantain chips. The original recipe calls for plain feta, but as the suggestion of a Trader Joe’s crew mate I used Mediterranean feta instead. This could be served over fish or chicken, or as a side dish as well as a dip. It was so delicious, both James and I loved this dip and we will be having it again. We killed it!!
1 package Trader Joe’s Steamed & Fully Cooked Lentils, rinsed to remove extra sodium
1 package Trader Joe’s Mediterranean feta cheese
1 container (7.25 oz) Trader Joe’s bruschetta Sauce
In a medium bowl, combine steamed lentils, Mediterranean feta and bruschetta sauce, then stir. Serve cold with homemade or store-bought plantain chips. Trader Joe’s has two types of plantain chips and both only have two ingredients, a clean eating win. I am absolutely hooked on this healthy dip as I know you will be as well.
You can treat your body as a temple and still enjoy the pleasures of life. Healthy does not equal boring. As with everything I practice portion control.
