Hands down, this 3 ingredient Quick and Easy Lentil Feta Bruschetta is my “go-to” recipe for holiday entertaining. Even better, I’ve paired it 3 simple, healthy, and delicious ways, so you can enjoy leftovers all week long!It seems almost a crime to call this Lentil Feta Bruschetta a “recipe”, and, to be perfectly honest, I didn’t invent it {I owe a huge thanks to one of my clients for sharing it with me!}, but I did come up with 3 SUPER SIMPLE and delicious ways you can nosh on this nutritious dip all week long.

Because, let’s face it…

We’re already half way through September, which means the holiday season is quickly sneaking upon us, which means things are going to get BUSY, and soon you will have lots of parties to host or go to, not to mention the TAILGATING that is to be done now that football season is upon us, and we San Diegans may be cheering on “The San Diego Chargers” for the last ever season.

Maybe.

And, just to be clear, there is no way that I will cheer for the “San Diego Raiders”, if that ever becomes a reality.

Maybe.

So, yep’, we all need this Lentil Feta Bruschetta in our life right about now.

And, if you are lucky enough to live near a Trader Joe’s, you can whip up this dip in under 5 minutes with these 3 ingredients–>Ready-to-Eat Steamed Lentils + Fresh Bruschetta Sauce + Feta Cheese…

BUT, fear not, if you are nowhere near a Trader Joe’s, you can still whip up this dip pretty darn quick, with any variety of dried {and cooked} OR canned lentils*, feta cheese, and your own DIY bruschetta sauce made with chopped tomatoes + extra virgin olive oil +balsamic vinegar + fresh basil +salt + garlic* + black pepper.

Now let’s get to it!

    Tried this at Trader Joe’s and bought the ingredients to try at home. It is so good. It is a cold night so I wanted something warm so I spooned some into a tortilla, wrapped it up and heated it just until warm. So good!

    1. EA Stewart says:

      Hi Lea! So glad you made the lentil feta bruschetta. I love the idea of warming it up and serving it in a tortilla-so delicious! Have a wonderful week!

  2. I don’t have a TJ near me. How else scan I make this?

    1. EA Stewart says:

      Hi Jeannine! You can make it with feta cheese, lentils (either cook them yourself-pretty easy-or use canned), then make the bruschetta yourself (unless your local grocery store carries pre-made bruschetta). I don’t have a bruschetta recipe on my website, but this one (minus the bread) looks pretty good. Let me know how it turns out!

  3. I tried making this for a party, and it was absolutely delicious! So easy too!

  4. online cake delivery in greater noida says:

    Really delish sounding, including the multiple ways to enjoy it.

    1. The Spicy RD says:

      Thanks so much! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

  5. Lauren Harris-Pincus says:

    So awesome! I’d love it with salmon and I bet it’s really good mixed with sorghum too- a little biased 🙂

    1. The Spicy RD says:

      Thanks Lauren! And, yes-I bet this would be fabulous with sorghum too! You have every right to be a little biased 🙂

  6. I’ve never tried TJ’s lentils! Definitely looking for them next time we’re there, then coming home and trying this. It sounds delicious!

    1. The Spicy RD says:

      Hi Marie! Oh, you MUST get some pre-cooked lentils next time you’re at TJ’s! I hope you love this easy recipe as much as I do! 🙂

  7. Jessica @ Nutritioulicious says:

    Love the TJ’s lentils – they make lentil dishes so easy and quick! I could eat this lentil feta bruschetta by itself!

  8. Viviane Bauquet Farre says:

    Simple and wonderful go-to combo, EA! The recommendation of the specific items at Trader Joe’s will be much appreciated I’m sure 🙂 Enjoy the coming season.

  9. Lisa @ Whisk & Cleaver says:

    This is one of my favorite potluck dishes – I have a similar recipe using goat cheese and basil. Yum!

  10. kellie@foodtoglow says:

    Sometimes simple is best. Case in point. But I am rather annoyed that I didn’t already know about this. Really delish sounding, including the multiple ways to enjoy it. 🙂

  11. Liz Schmitt says:

    On my list for my next trip to TJ’s! Looks terrific –

    1. The Spicy RD says:

      Thanks Liz! I’d love to hear how it runs out 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend!

  12. Deanna Segrave-Daly says:

    OK – I love both TJ’s lentils and bruschetta sauce but I haven’t bought them in a while. Guess what’s going on my ingredient list this week?? This would be awesome with their Chevre with Honey too – swoon. Looks so yummy w/ the salmon!

    1. The Spicy RD says:

      Hi Deanna! So, this is what I love about Trader Joe’s….finding out new things to try every week. Like Chevre w/ Honey…I’ve never tried it, but *double swoon*!! Guess what’s going on MY ingredient list this weekend?? 🙂

  13. Andrea@WellnessNotes says:
