We went to Jason's Deli for lunch today after church. I got the garden sandwich which had guacamole, tomatoes, spinach, cucumber, pico de gallo, and red, yellow and green bell peppers on it. It came on ciabatta bread, which is one of my favorite breads now! I have found another place that has something veggie that I can eat.....Yay!
Last night for dinner I made some Curried Lentil Soup. This was my first time ever trying any kind of Lentil soup, and I have to say that it was delicious. I will definitely be making this again! Here's the recipe:
1 cup dry lentils, rinsed
1 onion, chopped
2 celery stalks, sliced
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
4 cups veggie broth
4 cups water
1/2 cup dry couscous
1 cup crushed tomatoes
1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
Combine lentils, onions, celery, garlic, cumin, broth, and water in a large pot. Bring to a simmer, then cover loosely and cook until the lentils are tender, about 50 minutes.
Stir in couscous, tomatoes, curry powder, and black pepper. Continue cooking until couscous is tender, about 10 minutes, then add salt.
Saturday for breakfast I didn't really want to make a smoothie, so I poured a small glass of Naked Green Machine juice. I love this stuff!!!
I also made some buckwheat pancakes for breakfast Saturday morning. I made a few with chocolate chips and coconut in them, which would be the lonely pancake at the top of my plate. :o) On the other two plain buckwheat pancakes, I made some pear compote to put on them, which was very good. I was out of berries, and pears were the only fruit that I had in the house. Yes, it's time to go grocery shopping again.
