Hi guys I have found another recipe that you all should try. It makes a great side dish or you could eat it alone as a big salad for lunch! As you may have guessed I am a huge fan of kale and I have recently found that I love lentils so this is a great pairing. The recipe calls for goat cheese, but I don’t really care for it so I just left that out of mine. I found this recipe on Mind Body Green.
I apologize for the quality of the photo it was taken with my phone and poor lighting conditions.
It is quick, simple and really taste great! Enjoy!
Baby Kale and Lentil Salad
1/2 lb lentils
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Fine sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 red onion, sliced
6 oz baby kale
2 oz crumbled fresh goat cheese
Rinse the lentils then cover with water by 2 inches. Boil the lentils until they are tender, but still whole, about 20 minutes. Drain them and cool to warm.
While the lentils cook, whisk together the mustard, vinegar, oil, 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a serving bowl. Stir in the onion and let sit 10 minutes.
Stir in the lentils while they are still warm, then stir in the kale and goat cheese. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
What is your favorite way to use kale? I love to use it in smoothies, but I also cook with it fairly often as well.
