Hearty and delicious way to serve green lentils - onions make it sweet, almonds are for texture. YUMMY! Soaking the lentils the night before may help with the gas but not necessary.
Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil; add lentils. Reduce heat and simmer until lentils are tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Drain.
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onions until slightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes. Add mushrooms and celery; cook until mushrooms have softened, about 7 minutes.
Whisk 1/4 cup olive oil, soy sauce, honey, lemon juice, and garlic together in a bowl.
Stir almonds into onion mixture; mix well. Carefully fold in lentils and dressing; stir to coat. Serve warm or cold.
