Teriyaki Hemp Seeds & Lentils

This dinner was born out of a lack of time. I didn’t want to spend an hour in the kitchen, and this meal took only 35 minutes to make. Plus it’s freaking delicious and simple. Without further ado…

Total time: 35 minutes

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 25 minutes


  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 1 inch ginger
  • 3 Tbsp coconut aminos
  • 3 cups and 5 Tbsp water divided
  • 1 cup green lentils
  • 3 heads broccoli (roughly 3 cups when chopped)
  • 3/4 cup hemp seeds (hulled)


  1. Rinse the lentils, and then combine 2 cups water and the lentils in a small saucepan on high heat covered.
  2. When the lentils reach a boil reduce heat to low simmer for 22 minutes or until tender.
  3. Meanwhile finely chop the garlic and ginger, and coarsely chop the broccoli
  4. In a large pot heat 1 cup water on high heat covered. When boiling add steamer rack and then broccoli and cover.
  5. Steam broccoli for 5 minutes and then remove from heat
  6. Heat a skillet on medium. Then add garlic, ginger, 5 Tbsp water and coconut aminos for 2 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  7. Reduce skillet heat to low and then add the hemp seeds. Cook for 2-3 minutes until the hemp seeds have absorbed most of the liquid.
  8. Enjoy
