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 […]

Before last night, I had never made guacamole before, and I’m not sure […]
