These have become my favorite lentils.
I cooked them in the Instant Pot, then made veggie patties after mixing with rice, thinly sliced green onion and celery, grated carrot, garlic, and an egg. You could easily make it vegan by using flax “eggs” instead of chicken eggs. And you can use whatever veggies you like. That’s just what I had on hand.
They were super tasty!
Kroger gives zero effs for logical bag placement.
This with a scrambled egg and cheese makes a pretty decent breakfast.
I don’t think there’s a better way to test a new blender than to make hummus. It’s no Vitamix, but it’ll do!
I made oats upma last night. The cabbage was so pretty I didn’t want to chop it up.
Homemade hummus. I could eat it for every meal.
I may or may not have lost my mind. I was out of popcorn (the horror!), so I ordered some from Amazon. SIX POUNDS of popcorn.
I made more oats upma. I may be a little bit obsessed with this dish. Normally you’d make it with semolina or even farina, but you can also use oats. I like rolled oats, because they have more body. If you use less liquid, they don’t get at all mushy (I hate mushy oats!).
It may seem weird to American palates to eat something spicy and savory for breakfast, but it’s no stranger than eating leftover pizza. And it’s nice to have a healthy alternative to sweetened cereals. The veggies are a nice addition, too. I’ve been making it the night before, and it keeps and reheats very nicely. (I’m using about 1 part oats to 2 parts veggies of whatever variety I have on hand. The latest batch had green beans, green onions, carrots, cabbage, sweet corn, and tomato. I also add lemon juice to brighten the flavors.)
