Canadian Lentils, in partnership with Chef Michael Smith, recently hosted a “Love Your Lentils Canada” competition, which challenged home chefs and food bloggers to develop and adapt recipes that could become a new favourite for family mealtime. All Canadians were invited to test them out and vote for their favourites.
“Lentils hit all the marks: they’re easy to find, easy to cook with, healthy, tasty, inexpensive and best of all, Canadian,” says Smith, who judged the finalists.
The competition was split into two divisions: Food Bloggers and Home Chefs.
Home chefs were asked to take one of Smith’s existing lentil recipes and add their own twist to it, while bloggers were asked to submit completely unique lentil recipes.
