Refried Lentils

Sorry there's no picture -- refried lentils aren't attractive, but they sure do taste delicious!!

Tip: stick to eating 2-4 TB to keep it low-FODMAP.

Serves: 3-4 as a topping


  • 1/2 cup green or brown lentils + the amount of water it says on package
  • 1/2 TB grass-fed butter
  • Low-FODMAP salsa + some of the juice
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Cook lentils according to package directions until soft and tender and mashable. 
  2. Mash with a potato masher, fork, or whatever you want.
  3. Add butter to lentils along with a couple spoonfuls of salsa and salt/pepper.
  4. Adjust seasonings to taste -- feel free to add other spices if you'd like (cumin, chili powder, smoked paprika, etc.)
