I don't have lentils all that often, but when I do I usually put them in soup.

Soup or curries is what I do with mine. Lentils, spinach, onion, garlic and lots of spices with brown rice is so good.

I make "honey" baked lentils and substitute molasses for the honey.

1c lentils
2c water
one small onion chopped
fresh ginger grated
minced garlic
2tbsp (or a bit more) tamari
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp molasses (or honey in the traditional recipe)

Mix together and bake around 1 1/2 hour covered tightly. Yum!

I usually use a bit more molasses, as well as tamari, than it calls for.

I almost forgot, Mediterranean Lentils and Rice topped with carmelized onions. I don't have the recipe handy, Google has it though

That's what I meant with my post earlier.
. I lost the recipe, it was on my now dead computer.

And have it over rice or pasta!

Lentil salad.
Cooked lentils, diced cucumber, pearl tomatoes, shredded carrot, scallions, and a nice lemon-garlic vinaigrette.

This is what I usually do. Goodness gracious do I like lentils in Indian recipes.
Here's one I made a while ago. http://steamykitchen.com/10989-indian-dal-nirvana.html

I've also made lentil tacos that were pretty good (if somewhat unwieldy)

I actually had lentil bolognese for dinner. It was delicious. Much better than its mince counterpart ever was.

Try making kofta/falafels out of lentils and have with middle eastern salad! Delish, I bought some lentil koftas from the supermarket last week. They were kind of like falafels.

The recipe is utilitarian but the taste is quite good... well, with maybe a hint of controversy... and a slight "I'm not totally comfortable with that bestiality article" aftertaste. I would've posted a Francione recipe but it's pretty demanding: everything has to be cooked all at once and if it isn't perfect you have to throw the whole thing out. And the ingredient list is actually just a description of how terrible the Singer recipe is.
