Week 6-The Whole Legume Family

This week we decided to make one of our favorite lentil recipes. We had the lentils in our cupboard, so it seemed pretty sensible. Just to be on the safe side, we also made some more of those great refried beans. We had some of those with our friends last Saturday night. We did hot dog tortas, which, obviously, completely negates the fact that the beans are vegan, but alas.

It’s strange, because I am just now realizing that I’m pretty sure I have never actually posted a picture of the Spiced Spinach Dal that we made this week, even though we have made it at least 10 times. No surprise then that I didn’t take any pictures of it this time either, right?

So, I’ll tell you what it looks like. It’s kinda brown but then it has some green in it too (from the spinach). It’s also kinda soupy, but then the rice soaks it up and turns the same color brown. Perhaps you see why I don’t take any pictures of it. My food photography leaves something to be desired as it is, so I think it is best if I don’t take pictures of brown stuff.

Ultimately, it doesn’t matter what it looks like. It is good. And you can make it in the crock pot. So, it is easy. Easy and Good. Oh yeah, and healthy.

I’ll post a picture of the snow instead.
