Lentil "Italian Sausage" Crumbles

So I made the lentils again yesterday and wrote down the ingredient amounts. The spice mix is for 2 cups of cooked lentils. 

1 clove garlic, minced. 
Saute this in a little water for 30 seconds. Add lentils to pan and stir. Add spice mix and heat through.

 Italian spice mix:

1/2 tsp fennel seed
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp italian seasoning
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp tomato powder (ground sun dried tomatoes)
pinch smoked paprika
pinch of ground fennel powder (or more to taste) 

I've used this on pizza, on zucchini pasta, mixed with quinoa and arugula for a nice "bowl" dinner.  I bet it would be great in a zucchini lasagna! Hmmm....
