This lentil farm share skillet is a healthy vegetarian meal full of nutritious vegetables. Try this recipe when you have a fridge full of random veggies.

I love my weekly vegetable farm share with its variety of beautiful, local, organic vegetables. But I have to admit that it can be challenging to find the perfect fit for everything that comes home from the farm each week, especially when my schedule is extra busy. When I don’t have the time or energy to plan it all out, I turn to my Lentil Farm Share Skillet. I have a sampling of ingredients below, but this could work with just about any vegetables you have on hand.

Lentil Farm Share Skillet Price Breakdown

It’s difficult to do an exact price breakdown for this recipe because the vegetables I get from my farm share don’t come with a price tag on them. My summer share costs $11.50 per week, and this recipe uses about half of what I come home with in the early spring weeks of the summer share season. So this recipe costs about $6.50 to make, or $1.63 per serving. I think that’s a bargain for a healthy, organic, vegetarian meal.

  1. Step 1: broth, Step 2: Any and every vegetable you can find.

    That’s what my mom does. It’s perfect.

  2. Oh, I’m so jealous that you’re already picking up shares! We have another couple weeks until ours start coming in. I can’t wait! This is a great dinner idea for those days when you just don’t know what to cook.

    1. Our farm does start a little earlier than most others here in Massachusetts. The food isn’t as exciting as the summer selection, but I’ll take what I can get!

  3. I agree, one pot cooking is a winner and this both looks beautiful and sounds tasty 🙂
