We have been very fortunate to collaborate with the gang at AlohaCare Hawaii and their efforts and involvement with the community. They have been promoting healthy and affordable eating which is very important with diabetes and obesity on the rise in Hawaii. They introduced us to Jesse Lipman who has been doing some amazing things with local ingredients and teaching the keiki how to use them in the kitchen. This dish that he cooked on the show has to be one of my favorite healthy recipes. If you haven't had the opportunity to try lentils or aren't sure if you would like it, try this recipe... I think you will be impressed!
