Yes, another recipe.
Upon reading my comments from yesterday, I discovered a friend in the South Beach diet! Although I dislike the diet (my natural inclination is to include, not exclude, things in my life--particularly wine, cocktails, pasta and bread), it works and I definitly need help with the 50 odd pounds I am still carrying a year after giving birth. I have consequently become very creative in coming up with new and good things to make that stay within the boundaries of Phase 1 (which I have had to go back to since my very fat and happy Christmas).
So I promised a sexy lentil recipe.
Now some of you may think that I am hopelessly optimistic and romantical about lentils, but I am here to say that I am not. When I say sexy I mean exotic and foreign. This lentil salad tastes exotic and foreign (hence sexy) and like a drink that I love which is why I named it…
Mojito Lentil Salad
Lentils, however much you like, I usually have a cup of them, cooked (obviously)
Mix with a little olive oil and lemon and add feta cheese and chopped fresh mint.
Place over mixed greens or eat plain.
Tell me this does not taste fantastic and remind you of a mojito.
And it’s healthy and cheap!
