Lightbulb Non WFO Recipes? Lentils!!

James:

What about a location for non WFO recipes? We all like to eat

....And for those WFO side dishes at the table? Alioli anyone?

After 50 years (or more ) I've just recently discovered lentils. Last night I made my first lentil salad using my own recipe and we loved it. None left!

So I'll post it here and if you find a place for sharing other recipe's maybe we can share some more!

And I know this would be easily twisted into a WFO dish....start in the oven with the lentils, then finish stirring in the second half of the ingredients! Voila, smoked lentil salad!

Thumbs up XJ's Lentil Salad Recipe

Sautéed Lentil Salad

….….I looked at lentil salad recipes and made my own version! There are many different versions – Spanish, Moroccan, Greek, Mediterranean, Indian - lots of options!

A lot of recipes cook the ingredients together with the lentils. I started with cooked lentils since I already had them in the freezer. The idea was to have more crunch with the stir fry vegetables instead of cooked mush.

Finely dice vegetables and sauté in olive oil using a large fry pan:

1 cup carrots
1 cup celery
1 cup red onion
2-4 cloves of garlic, to taste
2 bay leaves (remove later before serving)
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
Black pepper to taste

Add by stirring in to warm but not cook:

3 cups cooked lentils
Chopped parlsey leaves
1 cup of diced tomatoes
Dash of curry powder
Black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons Olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine or apple cider vinegar and/or Lemon Juice

Serve immediately warm, or later chilled.

Notes / Options / What would I change?

I’d remember to add the lemon juice! But the vinegar did fine.
Lentils could be cooked in a stock instead of water.
Some recipes use dressings instead of the olive oil and vinegar/lemon juice.
Maybe some diced peppers, olives, or cucumber.
Garbanzo or Black Beans would be a twist.
Feta cheese too.
Other fresh herbs like Cilantro? Mint? Lime juice?
Maybe some brown rice or whole wheat orzo pasta?

This can be a very versatile dish. It’s very good, filling and nutritious
…and you know I really didn’t measure anything, so adjust to your tastes!
