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.
- 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
- 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.
