Lentil salad with red peppers and baked onions

4 comments Aug 30th, 2010 | By | Category: Recipes, Salads and Dressings

Lentils are one of my favorite ingredients. I like eating them in warm meals as much as in salads. This salad is reduced to a few tasty ingredients. Peppers and onions develop their aroma while baking in the oven.
They are being combined with lentils and a light lemon and cumin dressing.

Preparation time: 25 minutes + soaking the lentils in water over night

cooking time: 10 minutes

einfaches Rezept


  • 200 gram dry lentils
  • 4 red peppers
  • 4 small onions
  • juice of a lemon
  • some chopped parsley or coriander
  • a pinch of cumin
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper


Soak the lentils in water over night. Drain them then bring them to boil in a pot with water. Do not over boil them, they should be al dente.

Wash the peppers and put them in the pre-heated oven at 180 degrees centigrade.

Peel and quarter the onions and also place them in the oven.

Bake the peppers until their skin bubbles. Bake the onion until they are soft and took a bit of colour.

For the dressing mix the lemon juice, salt, pepper, cumin and olive oil in a small bowl.

Put all ingredients into a salad bowl and mix with the dressing.

Sprinkle some chopped coriander or parsley over it.
