Notes

*Lentils - Any lentils can be used except red lentils, as they turn into mush very easily ! I am using French lentils as they hold their shape well. Both canned lentils and lentils cooked from scratch can be used.
Seasonings - I am only using garlic and onion powder, but feel free to use any of your favorite seasonings ! This recipe is extremely versatile, and almost all herbs and spices will go well in it.
Oil-free - Omit olive oil.
Storing - Roasted lentils can be stored in an air-tight container at room temperature for up to a week. Do be sure to let them cool down completely before storing. If they do get stale, roast them in the oven for 5-10 minutes at 150C / 300F or until they are crispy again.
