Mental Burritos

When children are little they pronounce things in such a cute way, and often their interpretation becomes the way the whole family then says a particular word. That is how spaghetti became sketti at our house. As my children got older they would change the names of dishes not out of cuteness, but to express how they felt about a particular meal. That is how Lentil Burritos became Mental Burritos at our house. You just have to love teenage boys and their mode of expression.

Lentil Burritos

1 cup lentils
1 (14 ounce) can vegetable broth
Place in a sauce pan and simmer covered for 30 minutes.
In a skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil and add
