Warm Curry Salad

Warm Curry Salad

Happy Friday!

I am breathing a sigh of relief that this week is over. It was a busy one, that’s for sure. Not that that’s unexpected, but just… phew. Friday. I would imagine you feel the same?

Usually my Friday posts tend to be fewer meals and more desserts, breakfasts, snacks, and the like. Let’s face it – I am tired by the end of the week, and that is the kind of recipe that gets me excited to tie on my apron and get in the kitchen over the weekend. Healthy meals? Meh. I get enough of those Monday to Thursday. BUT today we are bucking the trend with this warm curry salad. Mostly because I got over-excited about polenta earlier in the week and just couldn’t save that post until Friday. But also because I think it’s worth throwing together a pot of this over the weekend, if not because you’re super excited about it at the time, then because you most certainly will be excited about having healthy leftovers in your lunchbox come Monday or Tuesday.

Red Lentil Tacos

Red Lentil Tacos

It’s all about the first impression.

A while ago, I tried out a (bad) lentil taco recipe, and forever dismissed lentils and tacos as being all wrong for each other in terms of flavor and texture.

Anyway, it turns out that lentils and tacos are so totally RIGHT for each other. It just took me far too long to discover it because of the rude first impression lentil tacos made on me. I don’t know what got me thinking about them again, but I recently gave them another shot, and discovered there are a few secrets to making my ideal lentil taco:

Happy Valentine’s Day, my loves!

I didn’t really do the Valentine’s recipe thing this year, as you can see. Though at least this hummus is red? Yeah, it’s a stretch.

But before we get to the food, a shout-out to my valentine.

The man who puts up with me for better and for worse, and is so supportive of everything I do. The man who washes the whole sink full of dishes when I am too stressed out to even function. And who just poured me another glass of wine as I type this.

He’s a keeper, and I am so lucky he’s mine!

Poor guy has a super stress case of a valentine this year, but that’s besides the point.

And the point, of course, is this red lentil hummus.

Did you know you could make hummus with red lentils? It is super protein-packed, and tastes surprisingly similar to regular hummus, actually. And I’ll be honest, it’s great for when you forget you’re out of chickpeas.
