A while ago I made this lentil soup sans the yogurt. At first I was a little afraid it was going to turn out awful because there are so few ingredients, but I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I loved it! It is just lentils, tomatoes, onions, salt, olive oil and greens but it is so delicious. This recipe made a huge amount of soup and so I froze some of it. After finishing what I didn't freeze in mere days I quickly defrosted the rest and devoured it. I ate it plain, with salsa on top, and with avocado on top. Nom. It was so good I couldn't wait to make it again! Well, tonight I finally did it. And so I present to you:
Sorry the picture is so crappy, but there will be plenty more as I finish the leftovers. My boyfriend doesn't like soup so the whole pot is mine!
To accompany this lovely soup I made two other dishes. In the cookbook that my mom got me "The Cookbook for People Who Love Animals" there was a recipe for stuffed potatoes. The recipe was essentially twice baked potatoes which I had never made before. This recipe got me thinking that I can't remember the last time I had a baked potato. I always eat them either mashed, made into baked fries or hash browned. So I set to work making some baked potatoes. I didn't follow the recipe exactly and they didn't turn out to be the greatest, but they were quite decent. I used olive oil, water, italian seasoning, nutritional yeast and salt and pepper and then topped with a brushing of oil, nutritional yeast and paprika. They were good but a little dry.
I also made cauliflower and carrots baked with some onions and nutritional yeast. I really like this method but my boyfriend does not. Oh well, more for me.
