Lentils & Veggies
by Cindi Sutter, Founder of The Spirited Table®
One of the many things I love about my CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) box, I pick one up every other week from Loon Organics, is finding new ways to enjoy this fresh organic bounty. Be creative and use your favorite veggies.
Lentils - 1/2-3/4 box Trader Joe’s
3-4 Tbsp olive oil
1 small yellow onion (or sweet Vidalia onion)
1 length garlic scapes
3 stalks celery
peppers - red, green or hot
1/4-1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes
Sel de Cuisine (Golden Fig) or your favorite sea salt
fresh ground pepper
I prefer to use a wok for this preparation as it is one easy clean-up and you can control the oil splatters.
- Chop onions, garlic scapes and celery and sauté in olive oil till softer but not mushy. Add pepper and sun-dried tomatoes continue to sauté for a couple of minutes.
- Then add lentils (Trader Joes) are already cooked, so just sauté until hot. Add Sel de Cuisine and pepper.
- Stir in sour cream or serve it on top or on the side. Top with an avocado sliced or chunks.
