Delicious lentils

One of my yoga students recently shared a lentils recipe with me, which he had made and thought I would like it as well.

Let me just say, wow, delicious.

He found it online and it is basically this recipe here.

  • 3 tbsp. butter

  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • red pepper flakes to taste

According to the website where the menu is listed the I am Grateful bowl is a community supported grain bowl. Shredded kale with local brown rice, black beans and tahini-garlic sauce. They created this bowl to allow for those in financial need to have access to organic vegan food. Payment for this bowl is by donation. No one is turned away. The suggested value is $7. You can feed yourself and someone in need for … Continue reading
