This Mediterranean inspired dish is sweetly tangy. The lemon-mustard sauce baked into the lentils pulls the tasty, nutty flavor out. Drizzle leftover sauce over a side salad, and your meal is complete.

2 cups 13 Foods Pardina! Lentils*
1 shallot, chopped
3 celery stalk, finely chopped
2 Tbsp red-wine vinegar
