I spent the day craving fruits and veggies…it was delicious. For dinner tonight, I planned ahead. When I get too hungry, I can’t think clearly/rationally, and I end up crying and driving to Sonic.

This evening, while taking a long walk with the Punkster, I dreamed up a scrumptious warm vegan lentil salad for dinner.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 1 cup cooked lentils
  • ½ cup celery, chopped
  • ½ cup parsley, chopped
  • ½ cup green bell pepper, chopped

Combine all ingredients and set aside

Dressing

  • 3 tbs. olive oil
  • 5 tbs. red wine vinegar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbs. agave
  • 1 clove crushed garlic
  • 2 tsp. finely chopped onion
  • ½ tsp. paprika
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Combine all ingredients in a jar with a tight fitting lid, and shake until mixed. Pour over lentil mixture and enjoy!

It took about 25 minutes from start-finish (cooking the rice/lentils took the longest time), and it hit the spot. Just what I needed after last night’s kid’s menu feast.

And now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to devour another greatfruit.
