I was going to post about this yesterday but already had two blogging entries. So - why not today, eh!? This is the Farro Lentil Dish I came up with that I ate for my lunch yesterday. I ended up making extra Farro as well as some Lentils that were pre-packaged from Trader Joe's the last time I went. All you had to do with them is put them in the microwave or on the stove-top for a few minutes. I only used 5 ingredients in this dish but I think I had it figured out that it was roughly 30 to 34 grams of protein in this...yet another dish to prove those nay-sayers wrong that vegetarians and vegans can't get enough protein, eh!? Here's what's in this dish:
1 C Farro, Cooked
1 C Lentils, Cooked
1 C Zuke in Tomato Sauce
2 tea Wildtree "Everything Blend" (More on this below)
2 T Pine Nuts
Inspired by the ubiquitous “everything” bagel, this blend can now be applied to, well, everything! Use as a coating for fish, flavor pretzels, or mix it into butter to make a unique everything spice garlic bread!
Of course you won't be seeing any 'fish' here on my blog...but you WILL be seeing other ways to use this product that goes along with my vegetarian/vegan lifestyle. This product does have a speck of sea salt in it and as many of you know I'm not usually one to add "salt" to my foods but it worked well here probably because it complimented and didn't overpower the other flavors.
This Wildtree Product includes the following ingredients:
Each ingredient is organic is at has the new(er) Wildtree Organic Label right on there! I will be trying to use this more in my dishes and post them here for all to see. If you would like to order this product on my website it's only $8.50 and a very little bit goes a long way! I would say 1/2 tea to 1 tea is all you need at a time but it DOES come in a shaker top so you can add as much or as little as you want.
I will have at least 1 more blog entry today so be sure to visit again soon!
