LENTIL SALAD.
.
I never really use lentils but I had a can of them so figured I would experiment with them a bit, especially since they are SUCH a great source of protein for plant based eaters. Also they just taste amazing. When buying canned beans make sure they have NO ADDED SALT, they can be very sneaky about that. So for this recipe I chopped up some purple cabbage (wish I cut it a bit finer), carrots, red onion, and celery. I added these to 1/2 can of lentils and then topped it with some parsley and cumin roasted sweet potatoes. For the dressing I simply mixed tahini, red wine vinegar, mustard, and since I had extra of my cilantro lime sauce I mixed that in too (but that’s completely optional). This meal made a lunch + some! Inspired by @reciperunner and @vegetariangastronomy Enjoy the recipe below 🙂
