This yellow lentils rice bowl is a healthy alternative for lunch at home or work! Lentils are rich in fiber, and minerals, and vitamins. Today, I paired the lentils with the fresh taste of grilled zucchini seasoned with olive oil and mint. A couple of tablespoons of Basmati rice cooked with Pilaf method finish the yellow lentils rice bowl: a vegan boost of energy for your body!
Red lentils dal recalls me my first trip in Asia. It was July 1999, and in that time I used to live for travelling. The fist region I visited was North India. I was vegetarian, and on shoestring, so between me and any kind of dal was love at first sight! Preparing red lentils dal is very simple, but is mandatory pay very attention to the spices, they must be of first quality. Cooking with vegetable oil instead ghee, makes this recipe a good source of protein for vegan diet.
How is the weather where you live? Currently, out from my window I can see a lot of snow! Against this cold, I decided to cook some flavorful braised sausages with green lentils. Roasted sausages are perfect with the flavor of the legumes. The beer I used to braise the meat chip in to make the taste of this recipe bold, but this recipe is great even without alcohol!
Tired of the winter? In this case, it’s time for a dinner that will warm your soul and your palate! The lentil and green pea soup is a classic of the peasant cuisine. I really like to prepare it during the last days of winter: its warmth comforts me and green peas remind me that the spring is coming! In this case, I served the soup with crispy croutons, but if you prefer add rice, pearl barley, or spelt, cooked in the vegetable broth along with the vegetables.
