Chickpea Lentil Sliders

If you happen to be good at guessing games, this riddle is going to be a doozy for you! So here goes…

What is free, but priceless?
It can’t be owned, but can be used…
It can’t be kept, but can be spent…
Once it’s lost, it cannot ever be gotten back…
Can you guess what “it” is?

If you guessed time – then you are spot on, my friend!
Time can be so elusive and unforgiving. Even though I try to live without regret, there have been so many times when I wished life came with a rewind or undo button. It’s one of the reasons that I try my darndest to eat healthier and work out so that in the long run, at least I can try and beat my genes.

You see, my mom was diagnosed with diabetes 30+ years ago. Now, when she was first diagnosed, she wasn’t quite watching what she ate or drank, nor did she engage in any physical activity.

But live and learn right?

Chickpea Lentil Sliders

These little Chickpea Lentil Sliders are super easy to make with 4 main ingredients and a variety of spices! I threw in chickpeas, lentils, lemon and an onion into a blender with some cumin, coriander, chili powder, turmeric, cilantro, salt, and pepper and whipped these sliders up. I pan sauteed these sliders for a bit and then flipped them and tossed them in the oven to dry them out some. These do have a tendency to crumble up a bit, but they make for one super tasty and healthy snack!
