Lentils & Olives
Looking for a meatless meal to satisfy you?
Look no further! This dish has it all. Lentils are a nutrition bomb of complex carbs, fiber, potassium and iron.
Ingredients: (for 2 large salads)
+ 2 cups black lentils
+ 2 cups cauliflower florets
+ 1/2 cup flat leaf parsley leaves
+ 1/2 cup fresh basil
+ 1 cup garlic stuffed green olives
+ 1/2 cup marcona almonds
+ 1 lemon, juiced
+ 4 tbsp olive oil
+ Salt + Pepper
Pre cook lentils. Set aside. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a skillet. Heat to medium. Add cauliflower florets and saute until golden. Meanwhile, halve the olives, leaving the garlic intact. Slice the herbs and chop the olives coarsely. In a large bowl, toss the lentils with cauliflower and all remaining ingredients. Season with S+P and ENJOY!
*Note - No time to cook lentils? Try these pre-steamed lentils from Trader Joe's. Just add them to the cauliflower to heat through.
