Burrata with Lentils and Basil Vinaigrette

Share

This is one of my all-time favorite vegetarian main dishes. It’s perfect for Fridays in Lent or Meatless Mondays. It doesn’t look like much in the photo, but it’s packed with flavor from the homemade pesto-like sauce, and it’s incredibly satisfying. I haven’t found de puy lentils at any of my grocery stores, so I […]

Pumpkin Lentil Soup

Share

This is a nice, comforting soup that’s great for chilly weather. It’s vegetarian and full of healthy ingredients. It’s thickened with a can of pumpkin puree, but doesn’t taste like pumpkin at all. Consider the pumpkin a thickener rather than a flavor-enhancer. As written, the soup is subtly seasoned and has a mild flavor. I […]

Drunk Lentils with Arugula

Share

One of our dear neighbors had to go on a sudden trip and dropped off some of his fresh produce with us. He gave us a bag of arugula, among other things. I like arugula, but I don’t buy it much. Not sure why. I should. I love its peppery flavor. Did you know that […]

Curried Lentil Stew with Potatoes

Despite what the food looks like (I actually think it looks a little like dog food – is that terrible to say?) I found it to be incredibly delicious and I was sad when I finished the last bowl.   I could have eaten this for lunch for a week without getting sick of it.   I […]

Italian Lentil Salad

This is not a pretty salad, but it’s definitely a delicious and a healthy salad.   It’s so filling that it can even be served as a vegetarian entree.  I loved the combination of sweet and savory in one dish.   I enjoyed the different textures too. I didn’t have […]

Red Lentil Soup with Lemon

When the weather starts to get chilly, I’m always on the lookout for a good, comforting soup recipe. Although I hated them as a child, I now love lentils (perhaps there’s hope for my boys?) and I’m always willing to try a highly recommended lentil soup recipe. This one was […]

Spiced Coconut Lentil Soup

Share

I love lentils and I love coconut.   And there’s nothing more perfect than a bowl of hot soup on a cold day.  This soup is very tasty with all of the spices that are in it and it’s a nice change from traditional lentil soups.   The spices and the basil really jazz up […]

French Lentil Soup

I used to hate extra tomato paste… until I found something delicious to do with it!

So yesterday I made turkey meat loaf that called for 2 teaspoons of tomato paste. I hate using just a tiny bit of tomato paste. I never know what to do with the rest. […]
