But I ate it anyway.
Because I was too lazy to take time out of my work day to make soup, which really would have been a much better alternative.
And once again I had a fridge full of thing that needed to be used up. I have become the leftover queen!
Last week when we made the lentil loaf I cooked the whole bag of lentils, but only used a small amount. And so I had a big bag of cooked lentils that I needed to do something with.
I decided, on the coldest day of the year so far, in my infinite wisdom, to make a lentil salad! Don’t ask!
It was quick, easy, and, well, cold!
I put the lentils in a big bowl, not the blue one this time, and diced up the last of the grape tomatoes, some onions, a big handful of cilantro, and the last of that nonorganic green pepper I had bought for a recipe that didn’t get used.
Now I am craving lentil soup though…what is your favorite vegetarian recipe for lentil soup?
